The King establishes the colony of Georgia...
Item # 670294
February 5, 1732
THE WEEKLY REGISTER, London, Feb. 5, 1732 A quite rare title as this is the first we have encountered in our 44 years. It appears to have run from 1730-1735. Later in 1732 the title would add: "...or, Universal Journal".
Of special note is a page 3 report: "Last week was held a General Council in which his Majesty was pleased to give his Royal Sanction to a Charter for incorporating Trustees for the relief of the poor, by settling a new Colony in the uncultivated parts of Carolina, which is to be called Georgia."
Four pages, red tax stamp on the front page, 10 1/4 by 13 1/2 inches, nice condition.
