Item # 674043
March 23, 1797
PORCUPINES GAZETTE & UNITED STATES DAILY ADVERTISER, Philadelphia, March 23, 1797
* Rare 18th century American title
All previous issues we have offered of this uncommon title were from 1798-9 with the porcupine in the masthead, but this issue is from the earliest months of its existence with a much different masthead.
Various news reports of the day, heavy with advertisements including one headed: "The Time Of A Negro Boy For Sale" with a bit more.
Four pages, very wide, never-trimmed margins, some foxing, good condition.
