Very early Idaho newspaper, shortly after creation of the Idaho Territory...



Item # 698048

November 12, 1864

IDAHO TRI-WEEKLY STATESMAN, Boise City, Nov. 12, 1864  A very early and rare newspaper from just 18 months after the Idaho Territory was created, and some 26 years before Idaho statehood.
This is the volume 1, number 48 issue.  The front page is filled with ads with pages 2 & 3 containing various news of the day. Mostly ads on the back page.
Four pages, never bound nor trimmed with very wide margins. Minor loss to an upper corner not close to any text, a bit of light damp staining. A very nice newspaper.

Item from Catalog 341 (released for April, 2024)
