BOUND VOLUME: THE CITY RECORD AND BOSTON NEWS - LETTER. VOLUMES 1 & 2. Nov. 5, 1825 through Dec. 30, 1826. 52 issues, (all published). Edited by Abel Bowen. Conceived as a 8vo.(5.75” X 9.5”), 16 page weekly newspaper not as a magazine, the name was changed after the first number to THE BOSTON NEWS - LETTER AND CITY RECORD. There is an emphasis on history particularly Boston and New England history but with many other articles including current events and the arts. Also much on the city of Boston’s government. There are several articles regarding John Adams and Thomas Jefferson and there deaths on July 4 1826. The first two and last two pages for each number are bound at the rear of the volume. In the Dec. 30, 1826 issue Mr. Bowen explains that due to lack of subscribers he is suspending publication and that this would be the last number.
The paper is illustrated with an occasional woodcut, 10 in all.
The binding is tight but lacks the boards. The contents are clean and bright. See Photos.
Appears to  be  very rare. There are no copies for sale on the net and I was unable to locate any history of sales.
