There is an article about Florida that is of some note, and a great ad for a cure-all drug for women that would cure ANY woman's complaint. It is an ad for an abortion medication. Was it legal, oh yeah. The newspaper is 8 pages filled with the tiniest of print! It measures 20 inches by 15 inches.
I often get asked, "how do I know its an original"? When you see and feel the paper, it becomes really clear. This really old paper actually holds up much better than the newer paper. Sometime around 1880 newspapers started using a paper that contains a lot of acid, which is what causes the paper to brown and crumble.
Because of the higher rag content, these older papers look really good. The paper is a bit browned with a bit of foxing, but nothing significant.
There is a little bit of wear along the edges, but no articles are cut out or missing print.
