Gazette of the United States, New York

May 2, 1789

The issue of the Gazette of the United States of May 2, 1789, in
the style of its period carries the date line, "From Wednesday,
April 29, to Saturday, May 2, 1789." This newspaper has an account
of Washington's first inauguration on Thursday, April 30, 1789.
For this reason it has been reprinted several times.
The Library of Congress has an original of this issue and
three different reprints. The original is on rag paper showing
chain line watermarks one inch apart. The reprints are:

1. A true facsimile but on wood pulp paper.
2. A reprint on poor paper having on page l-
a. in center, a portrait of Washington;
b. on right margin, "Gen. Geo. Washington's
Inauguration, Our First President, 1789";
c. below title, "Copyright by Back Number Budd, 1280
Broadway, N. Y."
3. Another, probably from the same plates as no. 2, but
without the copyright notice, having on left margin of the first
page, "For Sale at Back Number Budd's, 1280 Broadway, M. A. Burr's,
74 Allan Street, and all Newsdealers."
4. A reprint not in the Library of Congress is reported to be
found in the Chicago Daily Times of April 30, 1889.

Copies about which the Library of Congress has been consulted
have always proved to be these reprints. Their monetary value is
very small.
