Nothing new under the sun...
Item # 645430
June 21, 1793
DUNLAP'S AMERICAN DAILY ADVERTISER, Philadelphia, June 21, 1793 Page 2 has a curious & lengthy letter which begins: "The prevailing opinion in the minds of many, that so great a length of time has elapsed since the creation, that every discovery & improvement which the human intellects are capable of, has been made, and that 'there is no new thing under the sun', has tended greatly to discourage that disposition for research and enterprise, which predominates in some active minds...".
Other news of the day. The ftpg. features ten illustrated ship ads. Four pages, two very minor archival mends on pg. 2, very nice condition.
