A rare Philadelphia title from 1796...

Item # 668738

November 11, 1796

GALES'S INDEPENDENT GAZETTEER, Philadelphia, Nov. 11, 1796  A quite rare title which lasted just one year from Sept. 16, 1796 till Sept. 12, 1797. Actually the continuation of the "Independent Gazetteer", which was later sold to "The Universal Gazette". Just 7 American institutions have scattered issues of this title.
Page 3 has a chart of election results for President & Vice President, by county in Penna.
Archivally rejoined at the spine, a bit close-trimmed at the pg. 2 spine edge just touching some ads only. Untrimmed margins and a great patriotic engraving in the masthead.
