New York Herald billhead, 1889

A great relic from the early days of the newspaper business: A bill for an ad for Webster's unabridged dictionary. The 28-line ad will run once, for $3.50.

The New York Herald is one of the storied newspapers of the era, publisher James Gordon Bennett one of its legendary figures. Note the newspaper also took on side work, book and job printing and show bills.
