About this Item

Dummer, Jeremiah [1681-1739]. A Defence of the New-England Charters. London: Printed by W. Wilkins, 1721. Reprint. New York: Arno Press, 1972. [xii], 80, [5]. Original cloth, light shelfwear, internally clean. $95. * Reprint of the first edition. The Board of Trade oversaw the American colonies for the British Parliament. Claiming that the New England colonists were failing to defend themselves from the French Canadians, the board attempted to revoke their charters and assert direct control. According to the board, they were entitled to do this because the charters required the colonists to defend themselves. Since these charters established the governments and freedoms enjoyed by the New Englanders, they saw this move as a direct assault on their liberties. Dummer, an attorney by training, was Connecticut's agent in London. First published in London in 1715, when Parliament was considering the Board's claims, his Defense of the New-England Charters was the most important colonial response, and an important early defense of American rights against Parliamentary encroachment. Ill health prevented Dummer from pursuing the colonial cause, but it was taken up successfully by Massachusetts Governor Jonathan Belcher [1682-1757] and others. Bookseller Inventory # 44333
