Early Catholic newspaper with huge masthead...

Item # 682613

January 27, 1832


* Large masthead with a heraldic eagle

This rather rare title lasted for just one year, having begun in October, 1831 and ending in September, 1832. The issue is a "vol. III" issue as this publication was preceded by one titled "Jesuit, or Catholic Sentinel" and they kept the same volume numbering. It was also curiously superseded by the same title as well.
Its most striking feature is the very large & deep masthead, taking close to half of the front page, and which includes a large eagle with a scroll in its beak making it very displayable. 
As the title would suggest, the content is almost entirely religious.
Eight pages, 10 1/4 by 14 1/2 inches, various foxing, some fold rubbing, generally good.
