Description: Black History
1805 Charleston Newspaper Ad for Slave "City Badges"
January 14, 1805-Dated, Newspaper "CHARLESTON COURIER," Mispelled "CHRALESTON", with Slavery Related Ads for "City Badges, for the year 1805" and "Africans For Sale," Fine.
This is an original, printed period newspaper, 4 pages, disbound, measuring 19" x 11.75" entitled, "CHARLESTON COURIER," with Slavery Related Ads for "City Badges, for the year 1805" found at the top of column two of page four and "Africans For Sale," at the top of column four of the front page. This early newspaper is in above average condition having been bound for so long in a volume. The top header is well printed, but Charleston is spelled "Chraleston" and there is overall expected light tone, scattered minor foxing, edge chips and splits with a dark spot noted on the front page. It is whole and complete, with well printed ads, including Sailing Ships, Merchant Ads and much more. The important and scarce Slave Tag ad reads: "City Badges, for the year 1805. - Notice is hereby given to the Owners, or Representatives of such Slaves as are working out on hire within the City, that the City Treasurer will commence issuing Badges for the year 1805, on the first Monday in January next. - W. Roach, City Treasurer. - City Treasury Office, Dec. 8, 1804.
