GENERAL AURORA ADVERTISER, Philadelphia, May 4, 1798
* Rare 18th century American title
* (3) Slavery advertisements
Eighteenth century American publications are somewhat scarce. The capital of the United States was in Philadelphia at this time while the District of Columbia was under construction. Contains news of the day with several advertisements including one on the back page for the sale of a Negro boy. Two other slave ads are on the front page.
Four pages, untrimmed, tiny binding holes along the spine, very nice condition.
