First of this title we have had from the Washington Territory...
Item # 688557
July 13, 1883
DEMOCRATIC STATE JOURNAL, Dayton, Columbia County, Washington (Territory), July 13, 1883
* Rare old West publication
This is a volume 1 issue of a title we have never had before from Washington, 6 years before it would become a state. "Union List of American Newspapers" notes that it lasted for just 2 years, with just 5 issues held by one institution and scattered issues by another.
A typical newspaper of the day, large size, four pages, never bound nor trimmed, some very discrete archival mends at margins, some damp staining.
The folder size noted is for the issue folded in half.
