SAN FRANCISCO HERALD, California, Oct. 6, 1856  A very rare & early newspaper from California as this is the "San Francisco Herald For The Steamer" as noted at the top of pages 2-8, more commonly known as the "steamer edition". Such editions are much more rare than the "regular" editions.
Note that the masthead specifies what the market is for this edition: "For Circulation in the United States, The Sandwich Islands, South America, and Europe." There is no volume or issue number noted.
Eight pages, never bound nor trimmed, a few small tape mends inside, a few minor margin tears, loss to an upper corner is blank margin only.
