Antique Baltimore Maryland Newspaper John Adams/piracy/slaves/slavery Rare 1700s For Sale
FANTASTIC, ORIGINAL 1797 EDITION OF THE "FEDERAL GAZETTE & BALTIMORE DAILY ADVERTISER." This rare 18th century Baltimore newspaper was issued on Thursday, May 25th, 1787 [Vol. VI. - No. 1107]. Early southern paper features Congressional news of the day detailing tensions on the world stage between America, Great Britain and France. This editionincludes a separatetwo-page "Supplement" regarding a recent speech made by President John Adams. Original issues of this 18th century Baltimore newspaper are scarce. We could not locate another copy in private hands.
Another notable feature of this early paper are the many period advertisements and business postings found throughout, ranging from an interesting variety of notices to commodities, schooners and other properties for sale or rent. Due to Baltimore's seacoast location, many ads are maritime related. Among the many advertised "properties" are slaves, as evidenced by various postings for individual slaves for sale and rewards offered for the return of run-away slaves. The practice of slavery was alive and well in Baltimore during this period.
The Federal Gazette & Baltimore Daily Advertiser began publication on January 1st, 1796 (v. 4, no. 673), and after various name changes, ceased on June 30th, 1825 (v. 63, no. 9712). It was published daily except for Sunday. It was also published as the "Federal Gazette and Baltimore Daily Advertiser". Other later editions include the "Federal Gazette, and Baltimore Daily Advertiser" (Baltimore: triweekly) and the "Federal Gazette" (Baltimore: triweekly). It had occasional supplements as well. The newspaper originally continued the "Federal Intelligencer, and Baltimore Daily Gazette" (Baltimore: 1794) and was continued by the "Baltimore Gazette and Daily Advertiser" (Baltimore: 1825). [See: Maryland State Archives Guide to Maryland Newspapers; OCLC No. 2261038].
Condition: Rare early newspaper remains in good condition [see images]. Letterpress broadsheet folded in half vertically resulting in four contiguous pages [plus additional two-page supplement]; mild toning, scattered minor spotting, a bit of ink fading to inner pages, typical folds, small ink mark to front page, some creasing and tearing along vertical center fold, generally clean throughout. Paper measures approx 19.5" tall x 12.5" wide [i.e., 19.5" tall x 25" wide when fully folded out]. Quite a find and a very worthy acquisition indeed.
