    Two Civil War-Era Newspapers including: Natchitoches Union Daily printed on wallpaper. One page, 23" x 20", Natchitoches [Louisiana], April 2, 1864. Due to a shortage of paper, this edition is printed on recto of red/blue/brown/white floral wallpaper. A Union newspaper that began production three days before. An endorsement of the Lincoln-Johnson presidential ticket is prominent in column one. Stained on the left side, but text is still legible. Folds are weak and breaking in places. [and:] Natchitoches Union Daily. Two pages, 11" x 17", Natchitoches [Louisiana], April 2, 1864. Printed on blue paper that is lined in places due to a paper shortage, it is an exact copy of the previous edition on wallpaper. This is the first time these two editions have been seen at auction.
