[Broadside]: History of Harlem

Harlem, New York: From the Local Reporter, (1881).

Price: $1,500.00

Unbound. Broadside. Measuring 6" x 12½". Printed in two columns. Titled *History of Harlem* in ornate capitals at top. Old neat folds and a light crease at the lower corner, a couple of tiny spots, else near fine. Summary and review of the book *Harlem (in New York City) its Origin and Early Annals* (1881) by James Riker. The summary is attributed at the bottom to "The Local Reporter, Harlem." *OCLC* locates two copies of this broadside, attributing it, we think incorrectly, as 1904, which seems to more likely correlate with a later printing of the book. The text however indicates that this is soliciting subscribers for the privately printed first edition of 1881.
