Kansas]: Knapp, C.L.
LAND! LAND! READ, THEN COME AND SEE, AND YOU WILL THEN BELIEVE THAT JEWELL COUNTY, KANSAS, IS THE JEWEL LONG SOUGHT FOR [caption title and beginning of text]
Burr Oak, Ks.: Herald Print, 1890. Broadside, 13 3/4 x 8 inches, most of the text in two columns. Old folds, some wrinkling. Small closed tear to top edge, couple short fold separations. Overall very good. An apparently unrecorded Kansas land promotional advertising available farm land in and near Burr Oak, in the extreme north- central area of the state, on the border with Nebraska. The text touts "the best farming land in the county" and its beneficial wheat and corn yields, and then details twenty-six discrete plots of land, variously numbered from twelve to forty-six, still available for purchase. The broadside was produced by C.L. Knapp, Real Estate and Loan Agent who advertises an office in the Bank of Burr Oak. They offer ten-year finance terms so that "those who have but little money can get them a good home in this way." They also offer "farms in Iowa, Nebraska, Missouri, and Kansas." Knapp seems to have operated mainly in Leavenworth. The town of Burr Oak was settled beginning around 1870, the Missouri Pacific Railroad came to town in 1879, and a newspaper called the BURR OAK REVEILLE started in 1880. The HERALD, the town's second newspaper where the present broadside was printed, seems to have started in 1883. No copies of this broadside reported in OCLC.
