1818.094: Prospectus for the weekly journal The Eye By Oliver Optic.

Published: 1818

Full Title: Proposals by M. W Dunnavant for publishing, in Petersburg, a weekly literary and miscellaneous paper, entitled The Eye By Oliver Optic, Esq. Aided by several members of the Lynx Club .

Author: Dunnavant, Marvel W. (1793-1836).

Place Issued: Petersburg

Issuing Press: Marvel W. Dunnavant

Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.]; 24 cm. x 18 cm. (broadside).


Sheet lacks colophon; Dunnavant was a job-printer in Petersburg from 1815 to 1823, and had recently ceased publishing the weekly American Star there; newspaper advertising dates this prospectus to October 1818; as item almost certainly issued from Dunnavant's press then, so the attribution reported here. This paper never issued, however, making Dunnavant's next successful journalistic venture the Warrenton Reporter, published from 1824 to at least 1827 in that North Carolina town.
