November 04, 1848

THE FLORIDIAN, Tallahassee, Florida, Nov. 4, 1848 

* Rare antebellum publication

Nineteenth century newspapers from Florida are uncommon, particularly those from before the Civil War. Here is such an issue from the capital city of Florida, three years before the Civil War.
Over half of the ftpg. has various political Acts and documents signed in type by the President: James K. Polk. Various content within including: "Fillmore's Abolitionism Admitted" "He Won't Resign" and much more. The bkpg. is filled with ads including: "Committed to Jail - A Negro man named Dick..." with much detail & a small print.
Four pages, toning, very nice condition.
