THE SPECTATOR, New York, Oct. 31, 1798
* Philadelphia yellow fever epidemic
An unusual issue being single sheet rather than the typical 4 pages due to the on-going Yellow Fever Epidemic which ravaged much of the Eastern United States at that time.
There are several front page reports concerning the epidemic including numbers of recent deaths from the fever.
Four pages, never-trimmed, irregular at the spine margin.
Category: The 1600's and 1700's
