Early from Salinas, California...

Item # 692534

October 16, 1880

THE MONTEREY DEMOCRAT, Salinas City, Monterey County, California, Oct. 16, 1880 

* Rare publication
* Old Wild West

An early title from the county seat of Monterey County, just south of San Francisco. Very typical of newspapers from the era with a nice mix of news of the day and advertisements, some illustrated. The top of page 2 has a notice supporting: "Winfield Scott Hancock" for President.
Gregory's 'Union List of American Newspapers' notes only 3 institutions have any holdings of this title.
Four pages, never bound nor trimmed, news agent's stamp in an upper corner, a few bottom margin tears and a few very discrete archival mends at margins, nice condition.
