Lot x 3 Early different (likely rare, if not unique) American Pennsylvania Dutch Newspapers 1801-1814. Issues included: August 8th, 1801; May 25th, 1805; November 30th, 1814.
Lot is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Lot is not new or in "new" condition.
Newspapers folded and worn as typical, book is also well age worn, leather joints scuffed and split, front cover slightly loose, remains overall attractive as an object.
Text block paper is gently toned, light to moderate scattered age spotting, internally still well preserved, tight, sound.
Lot displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
