First of this title we have encountered...
Item # 687407
July 13, 1812
ALEXANDRIA DAILY GAZETTE COMMERCIAL & POLITICAL, Virginia, July 13, 1812
* Very rare 19th century American publication
A very scarce title, in fact we believe this is the first we have encountered it. There are no issues of this date recorded in Brigham outside of the American Antiquarian Society.
The masthead features an engraving of George Washington.
Pages 1 and 4 are filled with ads including one: "Fifty Dollars Reward...a Negro Man Slave named Ben..." with details.
Four pages, never-trimmed margins, some archival strengthening at the spine, good condition.
