California Gold Rush-theme print on the front page...



Item # 664684

June 25, 1849

NEW ORLEANS WEEKLY DELTA, Louisiana, June 25, 1849 

* Rare & early gold rush print

A very unusual issue as the top of the front page features a nice illustration with a California Gold Rush theme, headed: "The California Porter And the U.S. Naval Officer" with a caption which relates the story from the beach at San Francisco. Prints in newspapers from 1849 relating to the Gold Rush are very rare.
Inside has: "California News", and a report headed: "Death of James K. Polk" with all columns on the page black-bordered.
Eight pages, a bit irregular at the blank spine, nice condition.
