Uncommon American title from the Revolutionary War...

Item # 666263

January 19, 1780

THE CONNECTICUT JOURNAL, New Haven, Jan. 19, 1780 

* American Revolutionary War
* Rare single sheet issue

Most of the front page is taken up with a document concerning relations between Holland and England. The back page has a document from D. Diego Joseph Navarro, governor of Cuba., regarding declaring war against Great Britain (see). The back page also has an item from Congress concerning a lottery, and concerning pay for certain officers (see).
Complete as a single sheet newspaper (confirmed by the American Antiquarian Society), likely due to the shortage of newsprint during the Revolutionary War. Measures 8 by 13 3/4 inches, untrimmed margins, light water staining and minimal wear at folds.
Certainly one of the less common titles from during the Revolutionary War.

Item from Catalog 289 (released for December, 2019)...
