Extremely rare illustrated newspaper...

Item # 681754

February 22, 1868

KELLEY'S WEEKLY, "A Journal of the Times", New York, Feb. 22, 1868  In my 46 years in the rare newspaper business this is only the second of this title I have seen (first 12 years ago), in fact I wasn't aware that it even existed.
Obviously copied after "Harper's Weekly", the layout is almost identical including the masthead. But this title lasted for just ten months and is very rare as such. This is volume 1, number 13.
Never bound nor trimmed, complete in 16 pages, a bit of damp staining near the margins, generally good condition.
