TO LAND OWNERS AND OTHERS, INTERESTED IN SALE OR PURCHASE OF LANDS FOR SETTLEMENT. Joseph W. Moulton.

TO LAND OWNERS AND OTHERS, INTERESTED IN SALE OR PURCHASE OF LANDS FOR SETTLEMENT.

New York: 112 Broadway, November 1, 1845. Folio broadside, 8" x 12-5/8." A few light spots; blank upper margin lightly worn [a closed tear, no loss]. Very Good.

This rare broadside explains, to immigrant settlers and to land owners, the utility of Moulton's newly established Agency. Moulton was a New York lawyer who "retired to Roslyn and devoted himself entirely to antiquarian and legal researches" [Appleton]. Here he announces that, "An Agency for the purchase and sale of land for actual settlement, has been organized under my direction."
"Announcing the organization of an agency to aid foreign and domestic emigrants, capitalists, land proprietors, and reputable land agencies in the purchase and sale of land for actual settlement. 'To prepare for the agency, I visited the West during the passed spring and summer, and have recently returned from an examination of some of the lands bordering on the line of the New York and Erie Rail Road'."
