March 1, 1776
GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE, London, March, 1776
* Revolutionary War - Battle of Quebec
* Captain James Cook explorations
The first article has five pages on: "Debates in the Present Parliament" which includes much on the situation in America (see photos for the beginning).
This issue includes a lengthy article (3+ pages) on Captain Cook and the: "Resolution's Voyage on Discovery to the Southern Hemisphere".
Lengthy text on: "Account of the Proceedings of the American Colonists since Passing the Boston Port Bill" includes talk on the taking of Quebec. Nice "Resolve" from Congress regarding those who might "...obstruct & defeat the efforts of the United Colonies in the defence of their just rights..." plus more.
The issue is complete in 46 pages measuring 5 by 8 1/4 inches and in very nice condition. Lacking the map called for.
