About this Item

First edition, the July 1776 issue of this highly influential British magazine. With a number of engraved illustrations throughout. 8vo, disbound. [ii], 291-336 pp. A very well preserved copy of this scarce printing, uncommonly clean and fresh, stab holes retained at the spine and evidence of earlier binding. HISTORY IN THE MAKING, THE ISSUE OF THIS IMPORTANT ENGLISH PUBLICATION FROM THE MONTH OF AMERICA'S DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE. This rare survivor contains the continuation of the Parliamentary debate on the American Restraining Bill with hopeful ideas to establish a permanent reconciliation between Great Britain and its dependencies in North America to restore his Majesty's subjects [there] to that happy and free condition, and to the peace and prosperity, which they enjoyed in their constitutional dependence on Great Britain before the present unhappy troubles,." This issue also contains the continuation of the Account of the Proceedings of the American Colonists since passing the Boston Port-Bill. The textual inclusions printed here are ripe with the announcements of the movement of troops and the reports of engagements with the colonists, of the revolution at hand and the declarations of independence by the colonists. The declaration printed here is a precursor to the July 4th Declaration of Independence and it is signed: "By order of the Congress, John Hancock, President. Further inclusions cite the establishment of regulations and rules by order of the American colonists and the conflicts with Great Britain over many matters. There can be no doubt that the war is ramping up and the struggle for independence is to be fully engaged. Many other stories about this important events in American history are chronicled here, such as the detachment of Foot Guards destined to serve in America and discussion of the American Prohibiting Bill. The magazine includes other pieces of interest, such as the rather blasé review of Captain James Cook's Second Voyage Round the World. ".having already given an ample account of this voyage, we find little to add that is new in the work before us.". Bookseller Inventory # 27546
