See the ornate and huge masthead...



Item # 665416

September 24, 1784

THE ESSEX JOURNAL & THE MASSACHUSETTS & NEW-HAMPSHIRE GENERAL ADVERTISER, Sept. 24, 1784 

* Very rare publication w/ great masthead

This has to be one of the deepest mastheads of the era, with frilly script type in the top portion of it. A very graphic issue for display.
The content is quite typical from this era just after the Revolutionary War. There are many mends inside both old & recent (archival), never bound nor trimmed, toned at the top quadrant.

Category: The 1600's and 1700's
