Very rare title from 19th century Western Colorado...
Item # 675926
February 15, 1898
SEMI-WEEKLY STAR, Grand Junction, Mesa County, Colorado, Feb. 15, 1898
* Very rare title
* Mesa County
A nice & very rare newspaper from this town in Western Colorado along the Colorado River. Although Gregory (Union List of American Newspapers) records a "Grand Junction Star" there is no record of "the Semi-Weekly Star".
The front page has: "GRAND VALLEY'S PRIDE" The Grand Junction Fruit Growers Assoc. Prosperous" "A Big Reservoir" "Magpies Killing Cattle" with additional reports inside. A wealth of advertisements as well.
Four pages, irregular at the spine margin from disbinding, somewhat fragile & must be handled carefully.
