The Yankee Blade - 19th Century Pulp Fiction Broadsheet


The Yankee Blade, established in 1841 in Boston, was published by Potter & Potter. The eight page broadsheet newspaper, approximately 15" x 22", appeared every Saturday. The Yankee Blade was similar in content to the Dime Novels published contemporaneously. Each issue included a complete story, several shorter pieces, poetry and several chapters from a story presented in serial form. A subscription was $3.00 a year. There was always an etched illustration in the center of the front page. We are offering selected issues from 1886 through 1892. All have discolored pages, some soiling, and weakness at the folds. All are complete. Other defects are noted. Click on the title of the lead story to view an image of the paper.
