A gift for your barber...

Item # 702081

February 01, 1831

RHODE ISLAND AMERICAN & GAZETTE, Providence, Feb. 1, 1831 

* Early barber shop advertisement

Page 3 has a very interesting illustrated advertisement for a barber, with text on the service he provides including; "...to know where to cut and where to leave the hair so as to hide as much as possible all deformity of the head..." (see).
Four pages, rejoined at the spine, tape mend on pg. 2 affecting nothing, light damp staining in the bottom quadrant, generally nice.
