Effect on non-importation in America, a result of the Sugar Act...
Item # 659753
July 1, 1765
THE LONDON MAGAZINE, England, July, 1765 Perhaps the most interesting feature is the full title/contents page which has a very intricately engraved view of the skyline of London at the time, making this very decorative.
Inside has a nearly half page letter from New York which relates the results of the non-importation merchants are abiding to in consequence of the Sugar Act: "The late act relating to America took place last Saturday ...and has put a stop to almost all sorts of business, that in the marine way in particular, and if not altered will ruin many thousands..." with more. An argument is made that a land tax would be more equitable.
Near the back is a brief item from Boston with no historical consequence.
The map called for on the title page is lacking.
Complete in 56 pages, 5 by 8 inches, excellent condition.
