Sawyer & Graves,, Quincy, IL: 1855 - Folio broadside, 16.5" x 22". Printed using several different typesettings. Light crease from having been folded. Very Good. This rare broadside survival was printed during the early commercial development of Quincy, a Mississippi River town which became a thriving rail and river transportation center and, by 1870, the second largest city in Illinois. The Graves brothers-- Henry Littleton [1832- c.1882] and Washington Clay [1834-?]-- were Kentuckians who became Illinois farmers before they were out of their teens. They became partners with James T. Sawyer [c.1818-?], a native Tennessean with a well-stocked mercantile business. Their establishment is noted in the directories of the era. Sawyer later served as a director of the Quincy, Missouri Pacific Railroad. [THE RAILWAY AGE, VOLUME 11, NO. 9, MARCH 4, 1886, Page 118; Chapman Bros.: PORTRAIT AND BIOGRAPHICAL RECORD OF ADAMS COUNTY, ILLINOIS. Pages 320-323].
