September 19, 1795
COLUMBIAN CENTINEL, Boston, Sept. 19, 1795 In additional to various news reports of the day, the back page has an illustrated advertisement for: "Dr. J. Flagg" with details. Kane's "Famous First Facts" notes that Dr. Josiah Flagg was the first native-born, American dentist (although some give this distinction to Isaac Greenwood).
Four pages, a bit irregular at the spine, nice condition.
