From the Revolutionary War era...

Item # 666874

January 30, 1777

THE LONDON CHRONICLE, England, Jan. 30, 1777

* Revolutionary War Era
* 18th century original
* From The Enemy

Newspapers from England during the Revolutionary War are interesting as they give a sense as to life at that time and what political discussions were the "hot topic" of the day. This is a complete, 8 page newspaper and a very famous title with various news of the day, political reporting and many advertisements as well.
I could find no "meaty" references to the Revolutionary War however one item notes: "A great number of ships which had been taken by the Americans & carried into Rhode Island are all re-taken by some of his Majesty's ships at the taking of that island."
Various literary items, as well as politics, and perhaps a passing reference to the situation in America, etc. A very nice issue from the middle of the Revolutionary War which contains a partial red-inked tax stamp on page 2. Measures 8 1/2 by 11 inches, good condition.
