DAILY NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, Washington, D.C., Dec. 3, 1852  

* Death of John Wilkes Booth father

Pages 1 and 2 have 4 1/2 columns taken up with: "The Amazon And the Atlantic Slopes of South America" being part VII of a series.
This article is extremely detailed on the Amazon watershed.
Page 3 has a brief article; "Death of Booth, the Tragedian" being famed actor Junius Brutus Booth. It notes: "...He had just concluded a brilliant engagement in California & was on his way to his family in Maryland...". He was the father of John Wilkes Booth.
Four pages, a bit irregular at the blank spine, nice condition.
