December 25, 1787

 THE LONDON CHRONICLE, England, Dec. 25, 1787 The innocuous report on the back page would take on much more significance in the years to come, particularly with the notoriety the movie "Mutiny On The Bounty" would bring to this event. The back page report on ship arrivals & departures has a brief item reading: "...and Bounty armed ship for the South Seas." This would be the beginning of its fateful voyage that would end in a mutiny, as history would long remember. Complete 8 page issue, some spotty staining not touching the mentioned text, generally quite nice.
