GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE, London, England, June, 1777

* General William Howe
* Revolutionary War
* Restoring peace

Nearly five pages are taken up with: "Debate in the House of Lords...Relative to the American War" which obviously has much concerning the Revolution, including reference to America declaring itself independent.
Another page has a "Proclamation" signed in type by William Howe, from New York, on "...Restoring peace to the colonies..."  which is good reading. Near the back is a great & detailed: "Extract of a letter from Howe to Germaine" from New York, talking of battles at Danbury Bound Brook, plus other affairs in the vicinity, taking a full page. This is followed by a letter to "Earl Percy on his leaving Rhode Island".
Included is the full page plate of the 'New or Water Tower at Chester" as well as the foldout canal print (linen-backed).
Complete in 48 pages, 5 by 8 1/4 inches, a bit close-trimmed on the title page only, nice condition.

A nice issue from the midst of the Revolutionary War offering a perspective into life in the "mother country" when it was at odds with its colonies, which just recently declared their independence.
