Item # 590533

March 23, 1796

An 11 day earlier broadside printing of this treaty sold in Christie's/Caren auction 6/15/2017 = $1500

COLUMBIAN CENTINEL, Boston, March 23, 1796  Fully half of the front page, the two middle columns, are taken up with a lengthy treaty of peace and amity between the United States and Algeria, relating to the problems with the Algerian pirates capturing American ships. At the top is: "Treaty with the Dey of Algiers" with the George Washington script signature (see), and at its conclusion is a document noting its ratification, also with a George Washington script signature (see).
A significant document in international relations from the early years of the new American republic.
Four pages, close-trimmed at the top of page two causing minor loss (unrelated to the Treaty), but generally in very nice, clean condition.
