Great article on the description of Wilmington, Delaware...
Item # 667226
October 07, 1815
NILES' WEEKLY REGISTER, Baltimore, Oct. 7, 1815 Simply a terrific issue on the history & description of "Wilmington, Delaware, And Its Vicinity". The article takes over 5 pages, and is followed by: "On the Probability of Human Life, in the Middle States, Particularly at Wilmington in the State of Delaware & its Vicinity."
Sixteen pages, 6 by 9 1/2 inches, minor foxing, good condition.
As noted in Wikipedia, this title: "...(was) one of the most widely-circulated magazines in the United States...Devoted primarily to politics...considered an important source for the history of the period."
