This is a really
nice illustration, and one you will not want to miss. It would make an
excellent addition to your collection, or a wonderful gift for anyone
interested in the Civil War, or the History of St. Louis.
Unlike newsprint 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 assure you this piece will get noticed!
The leaf displays
the rich sepia toning that you expect in material from this period. It is
in excellent condition. It has several finger smudges in the margins, and
a few spots of light foxing. I offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all
