Act of Congress signed by Adams & Jefferson...
Item # 686137
November 09, 1797
CONNECTICUT JOURNAL, New Haven, Nov. 9, 1797 The entire front page and a good portion of page 3 are taken up with: "AN ACT Laying Duties on Stamped Vellum, Parchment and Paper" which is signed in type at its conclusion by John Adams, President, and Thomas Jefferson, Vice President.
Four pages, a very handsome issue as it was never bound nor trimmed with wide margins, slight bit of toning, very nice condition. One of the less common titles of the 18th century.
