Very early, short-lived, colonial newspaper...

Item # 643848

March 15, 1753

THE INDEPENDENT REFLECTOR, New York, March 15, 1753 

* Rare Colonial New York original
* Short lived title

This rare newspaper lasted for less than one year, publishing but 52 issues. Primarily moral and political essays, it gave offense to men in power and was "suppressed by authorities", as Brigham relates.
The imprint appears at the bottom of the back page, noting: "New  York: Printed by J. Parker at the New Printing Office in Beaver Street...".
A fine opportunity to purchase
at a reasonable price a very early issue--over 260 years old--by James Parker from the colonial press of New York. American titles from the 1750's are rarely found.
Four pages, 6 3/4 by 10 3/4 inches, nice condition.
