eBay Fixed Price Item # 371665146582

Rare broadside from London titled: "Mr. Boyer's CASE: and His Undoubted Right and Title to the Writing of the True Post-Boy, Asserted". As a bit of background, in May, 1695 Roper started a newspaper called the 'Post Boy,' which appeared three times a week, and was the rival of the Whig 'Flying Post'. Roper's enemies said he wrote for either party, according as he was paid. John Dunton, who commends Roper's honesty, says that the 'Post Boy' was written by a man named Thomas, and on his death by Abel Boyer. After editing the 'Post Boy' for Roper for four years, Boyer grew dissatisfied and started a 'True Post Boy' of his own, which, he complained, Roper tried to stop. This broadside relates to the quarrel between Boyer and Roper. See the photos for the full text. The broadside is not d... See More
