LOS ANGELES STAR, California, Feb. 15, 1862 Save for a damaged issue from 1861, this is the earliest Los Angeles newspaper we have offered, and from the Civil War no less. At this time the population of Los Angeles was less than 5,000.

Four pages, a bit irregular at the bottom margin, good condition.
