Question #1: Why are we offering these issues at such a significant discount?  Answer: Timothy Hughes Rare & Early Newspapers... History's Newsstand would like to use this offering as an opportunity to introduce you to the hobby of collecting rare and historic newspapers.

Question #2: Why are we offering an issue from the Civil War?  Answer: We selected a CW title in celebration (or better... to commemorate) the150th anniversary of the Civil War.

Question #3: What is the condition of the issues you will receive? Answer:  The issues will be complete in 16 pages, and will be in good condition (similar to the other considerably more expensive issues currently being offered by us on eBay and through our website).

Question #4:  Being approximately 150 years old (since the issue is authentic), will they fall apart?  Answer:  No.  Newspapers from this period were printed on newsprint know as "rag paper", which had a high linen content.

Question #5:  The 1st image shows several issues... which will I receive?  Answer:  You will receive 5 complete issues dated as described.  The 1st image shows sample issues from the Civil War so as to give a view of the variety of issues and condition of these wonderful illustrated newspapers from the CW period.

Purchase with confidence (read our "About Me" page).
