Handsome colonial Philadelphia newspaper...
Item # 566808
March 9, 1769
THE PENNSYLVANIA GAZETTE, Philadelphia, March 9, 1769 This was the newspaper which Benjamin Franklin owned for many years, turning it into an exceedingly successful--and profitable--enterprise. His name appeared in the imprint through 1765.
The front page mostly has items from London. Page 2 has more news items, some relating to America, with such reports carrying over to page 3 where are items headed "New York" and Philadelphia (see for portions). Pg. 3 has ads also, including: "To Be Sold, A likely Negroe wench...". The back page is filled with ads.
Four pages, very nice condition, nice engraving of a coat-of-arms in the masthead. A terrific example of this famous colonial newspaper at a reasonable price.
