[New Orleans]: June 6, 1804 [manuscript date at head of page].
2p. partly-printed handbill with holograph additions. Folio. Lower margin trimmed close, chips at edges Item #319786
A very early item accomplished by an American merchant in New Orleans, just a year after the Louisiana Purchase. The handbill alphabetically lists approx. 80 commodities (from Beef to Wines), with a range of their prices accomplished in manuscript. The early owner of the present document has also included some manuscript notes on the trading; e.g. "dull", "rather falling in price", and "in demand."
Although several later New Orleans commercial newspapers would carry the above title, we find no record of this handbill from years immediately following the Louisiana Purchase.
