Description

This Antique copy of " The Pittsburgh Recorder" is over 190 years old! You can't help but putting yourself in there place It contains religious, literary and political information published under the Patronage of the Synod of Pittsburgh. The weekly "Recorder" originally published in Chillicothe, Ohio by Rev. John Andrews, was moved to Pittsburgh and renamed "The Pittsburgh Recorder" retaining Rev. John Andrews as publisher. This EXTREMELY RARE Volume One [Vol.1] of The Pittsburgh Recorder is dated January 1822. There is news of a religious, political, and literary nature, and of course news of the American Indian. This is a newspaper in book form with over 800 double column pages and the news is simply unbelievable!

Let me just say, except for historians and those who might be otherwise privy to this type of information, that this gathering of such diverse information is a wake-up call to the human condition! I can't find any listings at all for this Volume 1 Edition, but I did find Volume 2 and it sells for $750.

This Vol.1 Edition is missing some pages and doesn't have a shiny black leather cover, but it has the look and feel of the past and, at 65 years of age myself, I feel like a little kid when I handle it! There are 26 missing pages, leaving 796 pages of amazing information. It is a solid book measuring 8-3/4" by 5-1/2" by 2-1/2". Its pages, though foxed, are tight and readable. This book is not fragile in any sense of the word and is in nice condition considering it is 190 years old!

I would say of what I read in this treasure of a book/newspaper is that it has a religious format as its main concern and that is what drives it. This is shown by the coverage of its foreign missions and the fight at home to convert the heathens. There is more than its share of uplifting Christian stories, but there are just as many atrocities reported at home and abroad. Don't think for a moment I am making light of this body of work --I am not.

The history between the lines, the human condition I alluded to both physical and spiritual, held me spellbound. I know condition is supposed to drive the price of a book, but I have been selling books for over 20 years and rarity and subject matter have been what I have always put at the forefront along with condition.

Be sure to enlarge picture so you can read text. Simply put, this is an amazing book! Just let The pictures and our feedback be your guide and I feel sure you won't be disappointed.
