A very nice colonial Pennsylvania newspaper...

Item # 559422

October 29, 1767

THE PENNSYLVANIA GAZETTE, Philadelphia, October 29, 1767  This is the famous paper once owned & published by Ben Franklin. His name appeared in the imprint until just two years previous to this date.
The front page has various news items from Europe plus ads & notices. The very bottom has a notice: "To be Hired on very easy terms, either by the week or month, Three Negro Lads, they have been used to house work or to work on a wharff...".
News reports continue on pages 2 & 3 including items from Boston, New York, New Castle, and Philadelphia. The latter report includes: "On Thursday last His Excellency General GAGE arrived here from New York..." with a bit more (see). The back page is completely taken up with ads, 3 of which are illustrated ship ads.
Four pages, very nice engraving of the Pennsylvania coat-of-arms in the masthead, great condition. A great example of this famous colonial newspaper.
