A Napa newspaper extols the virtues of the Napa wine-growing region...
Item # 689196
October 04, 1873
THE NAPA REGISTER, Napa City, California, Oct. 4, 1873
* Rare old West title
* Wine country
Although in the heart of the wine region, for which this city is famous today, its beginnings were centered more on the California Gold Rush of 1849. This city became a refuge for miners during the first severe winter of mining & later became an important center for lumber & cattle ranches.
Terrific that the front page has a 1 1/2 column report headed: "Beautiful Napa Valley" "Its Vineyards--Wine-growing--Calistoga Springs, etc." This is an excellent and very early article on the beauty and bounty of this area of Northern California.
Four pages, foxing at some margins, very nice condition.
