Very ornate masthead...
Item # 586640
July 27, 1772
THE PENNSYLVANIA PACKET & GENERAL ADVERTISER, Philadelphia, July 27, 1772
* Rare title w/ great masthead engraving
Most of the front page is taken up with an article: "On The Effects of Adulation" and page 2 is taken up with reports from Europe.
The prime feature of this issue would be the displayable masthead at the top of the front page, as it is a damaged issue. The back leaf is missing, and the single sheet "Supplement" which is attached is missing over half of the first column. The upper right corner of the front leaf is missing but causing no loss of text. Some small archival mends as well.
An opportunity for a displayable colonial newspaper at a very low price.
