Meriwether Lewis, explorer turned governor of this new American territory, believed its citizens needed a news- paper and the Missouri Gazette was born. This is a rare copy of Volume 1 Issue Number 3 of Tuesday, July 26, 1808…Printed by Joseph Charless, Printer to the Territory of St. Louis, Louisiana. According to a recent article written by Tim O’Neil of the St. Lou- is Post- Gazette, no original issue of the first edition exists leaving us only subsequent issues such as this one featured. Local news consisted largely of public notices, Auctions etc. This particular is- sue discusses “Patriotic Effusions”. “The Anniversary of American Independence has been celebrated by…an Oration from Thom- as Todd, Esq. and an Ode from Shadrack Bond, jun. Esq. Toasts were drank; the utmost hilarity and urbanity, as well as harmo- ny and order prevailed. ” General ads were… “One week for one dollar, and Fifty cents for every continuance, those of a greater length in proportion”. Charless, had the market to himself until 1815, when the Western Journal hit the streets. He sold the Ga- zette four years later. It was renamed the Missouri Republic and, in variations on that name, survived until 1919. A wonderful look back into our colorful and historical past, numerous splits, fray- ing on the edges as well as internal pages archivally backed and taped. ������������������������������������������������������������������������������� Est. $400-800
