Much on the tensions between England & the American colonies...

Item # 687205

March 17, 1775


* Rare colonial America publication
* Pre Revolutionary War tensions w/ England

Although all American newspapers from the colonial era are quite scarce, this title is even more so.
The front page has a letter concerning bearing arms, followed by a letter noting: "An artful piece has been handed about here condemning the proceedings of the Congress, & ascribing absolute Dominion to the King & Parliament, and the question is put, 'You must sign the paper that you join the King, otherwise you will be declared Rebels; and when the King's Standard is set up, you will be destroyed..." with more. Plus there are additional notices & letters concerning the tensions between the colonies & England.
Inside pages have nice content on relations with England, and the back page has an item: "The Act of Tarring and Feathering Not Repealed".
Complete in four pages, a transparent, archival overlay protects the entire issue, visible only at the margin extremities, a few minor mends at folds. Handsome coat-of-arms engraving in the masthead.
