Lot Details & Additional Photographs
(London, 1774), considerable space is given to an "Account of the Rise of Ill-Humour in America," which describes meetings being held throughout the colonies regarding taxes, loyalties, and tea. A Rhode Island paper goes so far as to encourage the colonies to unite against the British with the slogan "Join or Die!" The "Supplement to the Gentleman's Magazine: for the Year 1774" reviews Edmund Burke's speech in Parliament regarding American taxation and outlines the proceedings of the Continental Congress in Philadelphia.

From a private West Virginia collection
