Advance notice of Redburn in Lansingburgh

Picked up from the Literary World - August 4, 1849 but interesting for the reference to Melville as editor William J. Lamb's "friend and late fellow townsman." From the New York State Library via NYS Historic Newspapers:

Lansingburgh Democrat - August 9, 1849

"Our friend and late fellow townsman Herman Melville has just ready for the press a new work entitled "Redburn; his First Voyage: being the Sailor Boy's Confessions and Reminiscences of the Son of a Gentleman." It will appear simultaneously from the press of the Harpers, and Bently, in London."
