One-Hundred Thousand Land Warrants Wanted
1850. "Please Put This in a Conspicuous Place" [Broadside]. [Land Bounties]. One-Hundred Thousand Land Warrants Wanted. Boston: Albert L. Richardson & Co., n.d. [c. 1850]. 21" x 14" broadside. Toning, faint fold lines, light edgewear with a few minor chips. An interesting item. * Land warrants were grants of free land issued to veterans in return for military service from the time of the Revolutionary War through 1855. The style and typography of this broadside suggests it was issued after the Mexican-American War [1846-48]. Richardson & Co., "agents for bounty land claims and dealers in land warrants," promised sellers "Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Baltimore prices" for their warrants. A note at the bottom of the broadside says: "Please put this in a conspicuous place."
