Rare "New-York Mirror," "A Weekly Journal, Devoted to Literature and the Fine Arts," issued April 26, 1834, and in very good condition for a publication that's almost 200 years old. It was printed around the time Congress created the Indian Territory now known as Oklahoma, Cyrus McCormick patented the mechanical reaper and the French Foreign Legion was founded. Pages numbered 337-334, 10.5" x 14.5". The New-York Mirror was a weekly newspaper published in New York City from 1823 to 1842, succeeded by The New Mirror in 1843 and 1844. Its producers then launched a daily newspaper named The Evening Mirror, which published from 1844 to 1898. Edgar Allan Poe worked for the newspaper as a critic until February 1845. In the January 29, 1845 issue, the Mirror was the first to publish Poe's poem "The Raven" with the author's name. A letter printed by the Mirror in the July 23, 1846 issue caused Poe to sue the newspaper for libel and defamation of character. Poe won the suit and was awarded $225.06 as well as an additional $101.42 in court costs.
