Vintage 11" tall Congressional Globe Daily record. All are from around 1858 give or take a year or two. The Congressional Globe was a paper that documented the proceedings of Congress on a daily basis. Most of them are around 14 pages long. They have typical aging and edge wear, but are in good shape for their age and are fun to read. A new one was issued each day. Like a lot of newspapers from that time period, the typing ends abruptly at the end of the last page half way through what they were saying. It starts up in that same place on the next edition. It's amazing how little politics has changed. I just picked up a random one and a Mr. Houston is stating that "We have heard frauds of a flagrant character charged in regard to the elections of Minnesota, as well as of Kansas". Sound familiar? Interesting reading from a distant time right before the civil war. These came from one of our customers and are really a spectacular find. free shipping to usa
