June 23, 1785

THE CONTINENTAL JOURNAL & WEEKLY ADVERTISER, Boston, June 23, 1785 

* Rare 18th century American title

The dominant feature is the beautiful masthead, featuring a great engraving of a heraldic eagle with U.S. shield. A great masthead for display.
The ftpg. is part of the continued "History of America" by William Robertson. Page 3 has a report noting those from Mass. who were elected to represent the state in the federal Congress, John Hancock being among them.
Four pages, very nice condition. The subscriber's name is penned above the masthead.
