From Nebraska during the Wild West era...
Item # 692524
March 24, 1883
THE LINCOLN DAILY NEWS, Nebraska, March 24, 1883
* Rare publication
* Lancaster County
We seldom encounter Nebraska newspapers from during the Wild West era, but here is one. Lincoln is the capital of Nebraska and this issue is dated from just 16 years after statehood.
Gregory's 'Union List of American Newspapers' notes that the only institution holding any issues of this title is the Nebraska Historical Society, and they have none earlier than 1887.
A volume two issue with the front page containing various news reports of the day and many ads, a few of which are illustrated. More news & ads inside, many with the classic Old West font typical of the era. The masthead title is classic Old West as well.
Four pages, 12 1/2 by 17 inches, toning near the margins, nice condition.
