William Cobbett's famous newspaper...



Item # 662914

June 2, 1797

PORCUPINE'S GAZETTE, Philadelphia, June 2, 1797  This was William Cobbett's important and controversial--but short-lived--daily newspaper.
Cobbett was a prolific & controversial publisher who often wrote under the pen-name of "Peter Porcupine." He was famous for sniping at his political opponents, usually those of a Jeffersonian-Republican sentiment. The first issue appeared on March 4, 1797 and the newspaper lasted but 770 issues.
Four pages, never-trimmed margins, an old pin stain, nice condition.
