The Sun of New York from Tuesday, September 3, 1833, is the first issue, "Number l," of the newspaper. It was published daily by Benjamin H. Day, printer, and has been reprinted by later publishers on various anniversaries: September 3, 1853; 1883; February 27 to March 7, 1931; September 2, 1933, and others. Some of the reprints bear notices to that effect but others are without such notice. All reprints examined have numerous minor variations from the original. The Library of Congress does not have an original from September 3, 1833. A comparison of the several reprints in the Library of Congress with a photostat copy of the original belonging to the New York Public Library shows that they differ in various details.
The text of the original reads as follows:
The reprints differ from the original in some if not all of these details. Their monetary value is very small.
