About this Item

Broadside, 7 1/4 x 11 1/2 inches. Edge toned, lightly foxed. Very good. A very rare early 18th-century printed blank form for sea vessels, likely from the press of William Bradford, New York's first printer. The completed form would certify that the holder had cleared customs for a journey, recording the name of his vessel and its tonnage, arms, crew, origin, and itinerary. The only recorded copies of this imprint were found as endpapers (one free, one pastedown) in a volume owned by Michael Zinman and now held by the Library Company of Philadelphia. Both the Zinman and present copies were discovered bound with volumes of early New York laws in Bradford bindings, making it clear that they were products of his press. Further, the final printed lines date the document to the reign of Queen Anne (1702-14), during which time Bradford was the only printer in New York. NAIP mzrecordcopy154.
