A futuristic look at America vs. England...

Item # 696102

May 11, 1769

THE LONDON CHRONICLE, England, May 11, 1769  Most of the front page is taken up with a review of a new book: "Private Letters from an American in England to his Friends in America" from an interesting standpoint. It is prefaced with: "...These letters are supposed to be written...towards the close of the 18th century by a young American who is stimulated by curiosity to pay a visit to the country of his ancestors. The seat of government is transferred to America, and England is an almost deserted, depopulated nation...".
The top of page 4 has a small advertisement for a book: "The Present State of Liberty in Great Britain and America".
Eight pages, 8 1/4 by 10 3/4 inches, very nice condition.
