May 22, 1882

MOUNTAIN MAIL, Salida, Colorado, May 22, 1882 

* Very rare old West publication

Printed in the masthead is: "Colorado Produces Millions of Silver, and Silver Is King." A very rare title, as there are no institutions noted in Gregory (Union List of American Newspapers) which have any holdings of this title. The holdings of the only one listed (Kansas St. Hist. Soc.) were recently purchased by us.
This newspaper would change its name in 1885 to the "Mail", of which 3 institutions have holdings, the earliest from 1889. The town of Salida was founded in 1880. Today the 5200 pop. community is basically a tourist destination.
Complete in 4 pages, rejoined at the spine, very nice condition.
