We were excited to acquire 27 original issues of the old “Oxford Democrat” dating from November 13, 1894 to July 16, 1901! This was especially fun for me, as some of my family has lived in the Oxford Hills area since the late 1800s.
Condition: While many of the papers are in excellent condition, some can only be deemed as fair. Also, a few have the date and/or names handwritten across the top. Even so, the articles and the ads are still fascinating, especially for those of us native to the area… think of the hours you can spend immersed in the news from nearly 125 years ago!
Price: Just $40.00 for all twenty-seven copies. (Plus the obligatory 5.5% State of Maine Sales Tax, of course.)
Layaway Plan: Please see our “Details: Layaway Plan” page.
Payment Information: Please see our “Details: Payment & Pricing” page.
Shipping & Delivery Information: Please see our “Details: Shipping & Delivery” page.

In memory of my beloved husband John K Snyder… 20 Sept 1956 – 21 Oct 2016.
He loved our shops, especially Heritage Books, Maps & Ephemera – it was his baby.
He loved me, and oh how I loved him.
Follow our blog at https://warrior-project.org, in honor of my husband, and all others who have been lost to internal demons that in the end, overwhelmed them.
All of the profits after expenses from Heritage Collectibles, Books & Maps and Papa’s Thrift Shop will go to help fund The Warrior Project, a suicide prevention drop-in and counseling center in the process of being developed.
(Please Note: The Warrior Project is in no way intended to be reflective of, or piggy back off, Wounded Warriors which serves those military personnel wounded after September 11, 20o1. Like too many others, John was a warrior long before then.)
