Washington and Napoleon Buonaparte...

Item # 686143

April 05, 1797

COLUMBIAN CENTINEL, Boston, April 5, 1797 

* President George Washington
* Napoleon Bonaparte

At the bottom of the front page is an Act of Congress which is signed in script type by the President: Go. Washington.
This was one of just a few newspapers which used the script type for documents signed by politicians, making such issues very displayable.
Amongst the various items on page 2 are: "Mr. Monroe's Speech" and two documents signed: Buonaparte, concerning "Important Victories in Italy".
Four pages, nice condition.
