Antebellum New Orleans...

Item # 673735

August 26, 1850

THE DAILY CRESCENT, New Orleans, Louisiana, Aug. 26, 1850 

* Rare antebellum publication

Newspapers from the Deep South are particularly difficult to find from before the Civil War, but here is one.
Over half of the front page is taken up with ads. Given its strategic location along the Mississippi it is not surprising that there are 35 illustrated ship ads.
Four pages, archivally rejoined at the spine, good condition.
