1816 Edinburgh newspaper collection of 64 issues of the Edinburgh Star newspaper together with single 1816 issues of the Edinburgh Evening Courant, Edinburgh Weekly Chronicle, Edinburgh Correspondent and The Caledonian - one issue of the Morning Chronicle from 1816 and one of the New York newspaper, the National Advertiser, also from 1816. Additionally there is a single issue of the Edinburgh Star from June 21 1814 which records the First Treaty of Paris. The newspapers are bound in early nineteenth century half calf over marbled boards (instruction to the binder on the first issue in a contemporary hand) an elephant folio, with a morocco spine label and the date '1816' in gilt. This binding is worn and rubbed, with cracking to the lower section of the outer hinges but quite sound. The newspapers are generally in very good condition with some folding and browning to the first and last few issues. The volume begins with 64 issues of the Edinburgh Star with the other titles bound in at the end, concluding with the New York title, complete with an article about the 'British abolition of slavery'. The 64 issues of the Edinburgh Star run from 789-866, with the omission of 816/17/22/27/28/30/33/37/40/42/44/45/51/64. The Edinburgh Evening Courant is dated September 20 1813. These newspapers record the life of Edinburgh and the wider world in 1816. Particularly fascinating are the notifications of vessels departing from Leith, frequently to New York and beyond.
