November 30, 1850

THE DAILY DELTA, New Orleans, Nov. 30, 1850 

* Rare antebellum publication
* Runaway slaves & for sale ads
* From the deep South

Newspapers from the pre-Civil War South are rather difficult to find. Here is one from Louisiana.
Among the many inside page ads is one headed: "Slaves! Slaves! Slaves!" which notes in part: "The subscribers are prepared to receive, on consignment, for sale in this market, any number of slaves, having one of the best showrooms in the city, & large & comfortable quarters where every attention will be paid to their comfort. Merchants, planters, and families having slaves to dispose of will find it to their interest to place them in our charge..." with a bit more.
Also inside are 3 additional slave-related, illustrated ads headed: "$50 Reward" "Twenty-Five Dollars Reward" and: "$25 Reward", each with details.
Four pages, archival strengthening at the irregular spine, good condition.
