Patriotic & decorative masthead...

Item # 680031

March 03, 1866

FLAG OF OUR UNION, Boston, March 3, 1866  This was a popular weekly which in the early 1850's claimed to have the largest circulation of any newspaper in the United States. It was begun by the famed publishers Gleason & Ballou, who lent their names to titles which were much like the later Harper's Weekly. Mostly literary content with a very ornate, displayable masthead.
Sixteen pages, very nice condition.
