From Nebraska during the Wild West era...

Item # 692526

March 10, 1883

THE LINCOLN DAILY NEWS, Nebraska, March 10, 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, one featuring a large print of an early train. The back page has many small & often quaint news tidbits.
Four pages, 12 1/2 by 17 inches, toning near the margins, nice condition.
