The Boston Port Bill and the colonists' problem with Englands power over the colonies...



Item # 650490

July 1, 1774

THE LONDON MAGAZINE, England, July, 1774  Among the articles is: "The Speech of Moses Bon Saam, a Free Negro, to the Revolted Slaves in ...the West Indies" which takes nearly 1 1/2 pages. Over 9 pages are taken up with reports of debates in Parliament.
There is a full page plate of: "Women at the Quern and the Luaghad, with a View of Talyskir", Taliskir being a town on the Isle of  Skye off Scotland.
In: "Review of New Publications" is: "Thoughts on the Act for Making More  Effectual Provision for the Government of the Province of Quebec" and; "Observations on the Act of Parliament Commonly Called  the Boston Port Bill..." .
The bkpg. has news headed: "America" which notes: "The consequences of blocking up the port of Boston become every day ore serious...at least in appearance every part of America must feel the shock & experience the most dreadful calamities...The Bostonian seem to have no objection to pay for the tea they destroyed, but to acknowledge the power which the parliament of Great Britain claim over their charters, is a concession they at present seem no ways inclined to make. Let us hope that some means will be speedily found to put an end to these fatal disputes between the colonies and their mother country." But that would certainly not happen soon.
Included also is a foldout piece of music. The other plate called for is lacking.
Complete in 52 pages, 5 by 8 1/4 inches, very nice condition.

Formatted very much like the Gentleman's Magazine but a much more scarce title. The title/contents page features a great engraving of the skyline of London.
