Ratta Hemlandet och Missionsbladet Januuari 1864 - December 1866.
Religious Swedish publication with monthly sections from January 1864 to December 1866.
Hemlandet was a Swedish-American
newspaper begun in 1855 in Galesburg, Illinois. It was the first Swedish-language newspaper in America.
Founded by Lutheran Minister Tuve Hasselquist, the newspaper moved to Chicago in 1859 along with his Swedish Lutheran Publication Society. Its original content was primarily religious, but when P.A. Sundelius became its editor in the late 1860s, its coverage on general issues began to change from denominational to more political. In 1869, Sundelius left for another Swedish language newspaper.
Leather spine with paper over boards and black title. Moderately rubbed cover (more so to rear). Secure binding with just mild scattered foxing. Almost 9 x 5-1/2 and divided into three page sections with 192 pages in each of those. Written in Swedish. Rare religious Swedish book!
