Early 19th Century Newspaper Fi

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Not sure whether this counts as a gadget, but I have a bound full set of the New York Spectator, a bi-weekly newspaper, from January 1, 1830 through December 30, 1831. Almost every single paper is in great shape, though the leather covers have seen better days. I tried looking this up on google, and saw one guy who's selling individual dates (single newspapers) from this period for 25-40 dollars or so. This volume has 52x2x2=208? papers. Pretty amazing stuff - you'd almost think some of it was from today's paper.

If anyone's interested in this (it's a very large and heavy bound volume), please let me know; in my futile attempt to downsize a little, I'm willing to entertain any serious offers - but warning: there is so much to read here, I can't imagine anyone ever being able to read it all. I have to say though, it is great and endlessly entertaining and fascinating (though heavy) for browsing! Very cool stuff!

I recently bought a half century run of St Nicholas Magazine, which was the top children's illustrated magazine in the last half of the 19th century. Lots of great stuff among all this old crumbling paper.
