Boston in 1768....
Item # 617989
January 7, 1768
THE BOSTON CHRONICLE EXTRAORDINARY, Boston, Massachusetts, Jan. 7, 1768
* Rare Colonial America original
This "Extraordinary" issue was printed between the newspaper's regular printing schedule (dates of Jan. 4 and Jan. 11) typically created when news arrived which needed to be known before the next scheduled edition. Most of the news is from Europe, however the back page has a note: "...from Mobile, in West Florida, that the governor of New Orleans had a length concluded a treaty of peace & friendship with the neighbouring Indians...".
Complete in 4 pages, 8 1/12 by 10 1/2 inches, nice condition. A fine opportunity for a colonial imprint at a reasonable price.
