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."
