This newspaper lasted but two years...

Item # 684687

October 15, 1795

FEDERAL ORRERY, Boston, Oct. 15, 1795 

* Rare 18th century American publication

A volume two issue of this elusive title from Boston which lasted just two years. Various news of the day & a wealth of ads. An "orrery" is a mechanical model of the Solar System that illustrates or predicts the relative positions and motions of the planets and moons, usually according to the heliocentric model. The masthead engraving shows such.
Four pages, a very small slit to the front leaf, nice condition.
