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.
