Very early, short-lived, colonial newspaper...



Item # 680853

June 14, 1753

THE INDEPENDENT REFLECTOR, New York, June 14, 1753  This rare newspaper lasted for less than one year, publishing but 52 issues. Primarily moral and political essays, it gave offense to men in power and was "suppressed by authorities", as Brigham relates.
A fine opportunity to purchase
at a reasonable price a very early issue--over 265 years old--by James Parker from the colonial press of New York. American titles from the 1750's are rarely found.
Four pages, 6 3/4 by 10 3/4 inches, a bit of foxing, nice condition.

Item from Catalog 313 (released for December, 2021)...

Category: The 1600's and 1700's
