Multiple reports from America...
"No liberty! No life! Proper wages..." - a commoner's view of English life...
Item # 652298
June 2, 1768
THE LONDON CHRONICLE, June 2, 1768 Multiple inside reports are from various locations throughout America, including two articles from New York, one from Boston, and another from Philadelphia (see images for details). The Postscript has the interesting, "No liberty! No life! Proper wages, and down with oppression. In a letter to the brave people of England," a rather lengthy title by John Englishman which gives a nice view of how commoners viewed life in 18th century England.
Also, not shown in the photos is the announcement that a new work by Voltaire has just been published: "The Man of Forty Crowns."
Other news reports and period advertising are found throughout.
Complete in 8 pages, 9 by 12 inches, only minor rubbing, very nice condition.
