Once owned & printed by Ben Franklin...



Item # 562335

May 7, 1767

THE PENNSYLVANIA GAZETTE, Philadelphia, May 7, 1767  The masthead features a nice engraving of what was then Pennsylvania's coat-of-arms (see).
This newspaper was once owned & printed by Ben Franklin, but his name & involvement ended a few years earlier than this date.
An interesting variety of news tidbits throughout including a page 2 item: "The late disputes in New York have again roused the revengeful spirit of your enemies & have lost the colonies some, till now, very staunch friends, & who were most attached to their interests."
A great number of ads in this newspapers which speaks to the success of this popular newspaper. Four pages and in excellent condition. A fine example of a famous colonial newspaper at a reasonable price.
