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

Item # 692662

August 02, 1753

THE INDEPENDENT REFLECTOR, New York, August 2, 1753 

* Rare Colonial New York original
* Short lived publication

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, some foxing, a few very discrete archival mends at the margins, good condition.
