From the Revolutionary War era...
Item # 568592
August 24, 1780
THE LONDON CHRONICLE, England, August 24, 1780 Newspapers from England during the time of the Revolutionary War are always interesting as they give a sense as to life at that time and what political discussions were the "hot topic" of the day.
This is a complete, 8 page newspaper and a very famous title with various news of the day, political reporting and many advertisements as well.
I could find no "meaty" references to the Revolutionary War in this issue, however there is much on events in Europe. Contains literary items, as well as politics, and perhaps a passing reference to the situation in America, etc.
A very nice issue from the middle of the Revolutionary War.
This issue measures about 8 1/2 by 11 inches, few front page foxing sports and minor rubbing, otherwise in nice condition.
