Very early, short-lived, colonial newspaper...
Item # 661507
March 22, 1753
THE INDEPENDENT REFLECTOR, New York, March 22, 1753 This rare newspaper lasted for less than one year, publishing but 52 issues. Primarily moral and political essays, it gave offense to men in power and was "suppressed by authorities", as Brigham relates. This issue is focused on thoughts about creating a college in New York with much on its focus, structure, etc. Reference is made to both Harvard & Yale.
The imprint appears at the bottom of the back page, noting: "New York: Printed by J. Parker at the New Printing Office in Beaver Street...".
A fine opportunity to purchase at a reasonable price a very early issue--over 265 years old--by James Parker from the colonial press of New York. American titles from the 1750's are rarely found.
Four pages, 6 3/4 by 10 3/4 inches, a bit of foxing, nice condition.
