Describe what you have to sell

(* required) I own and have full legal title to the above items.

A pair of content-rich letters between two sisters during the American Revolution. As the British navy sails their way down to Philadelphia, these two Quaker women wrote to one another about this event and similar specific to the great conflict.

A stunning broadside, a single sheet, announcing the death of President Abraham Lincoln from the Secretary of War, Edward M. Stanton. The ghost-like letters seen in reverse are from ink transfer, possibly from the broadside being folded while the ink was still saturating through the surface of the paper’s fibers.

Single rare books and entire libraries of rare books are purchased
