Bi-lingual Louisiana newspaper from shortly after the Civil War...



Item # 671214

December 08, 1866

THE WEEKLY IBERVILLE SOUTH, Plaquemine, Louisiana, Dec. 8, 1866 

* Rare publication from the deep South

Uncommon newspaper from this town just south of Baton Rouge and from shortly after the end of the Civil War. "Union List of Newspapers" notes just 4 institutions having any holdings of this title, and none have issues of this early date.
This is a bi-lingual newspaper, as the front leaf is entirely in English, and the back leaf, with its own masthead: "Le Sud d'Iberville", is mostly in French.
Four pages in total, large folio size, good condition. Folder size noted is for the issue folded in half.
