Horace Greeley's first successful publication...



Item # 697731

April 13, 1839

THE NEW-YORKER, New York, April 13, 1839  This title was published by the famed Horace Greeley, begun some seven years before his more famous 'New York Tribune' would print its first issue. Although he would work at several newspapers prior to the 'New Yorker' this would be his first successful venture eventually reaching a circulation of 9,000.
Long active in politics, Greeley served briefly as a congressman from New York and was the unsuccessful candidate of the new Liberal Republican Party in the 1872 presidential election against incumbent President Ulysses S. Grant.
Sixteen pages, 9 1/2 by 12 inches, a bit of foxing, good condition.
