of this century, these older, original pages do not yellow and fall
apart. The reason is that modern newspapers use an acid based process.
Remnant acid in the paper causes the paper to quickly yellow and
deteriorate. A different process was used in the mid-1800's which
yielded an exceptional quality paper that will last for
centuries. Special acid free mats should be used when you frame this
piece to ensure that it will last another 150 years. Acid free mats are
available at most better frame shops. If you have any questions related
to handling or framing this piece feel free to email me. The print is
approximately 10 3/4 X 16 inches. I have been collecting Civil War
Newspapers for over 10 years. It is a fascinating hobby, and I find
that these pieces really get noticed when framed and displayed.
The print is in
overall good condition. It has the normal sepia toning expected in
material from this period. The margin has finger smudges from folks
handling it over the last 130 years. There is a light amount of foxing
in the margin, which can be seen in the image above. The print is
highly displayable, and I guarantee your satisfaction!
