The Yellow Fever epidemic...
Item # 671958
October 06, 1798
THE SPECTATOR, New York, Oct. 6, 1798
* Philadelphia yellow fever epidemic
An unusual issue being single sheet rather than the typical 4 pages due to the on-going Yellow Fever Epidemic which ravaged much of the Eastern United States at that time.
There are front page articles relating to the epidemic including a report on the number of recent deaths from the fever, one taking over a full column.
Four pages, never-trimmed, irregular at the spine margin.
Category: The 1600's and 1700's
