    [Revolutionary War] London Newspapers. Three important newspapers giving the British point of view of the American revolution. 1. The London Gazette, Tuesday, March 27 to Saturday, March 31, 1781, eight pages, 7.5" x 12". Contains news of the American rebellion, battle details, and part of a letter from Lord Cornwallis to Henry Clinton, the British Commander-in-Chief during the American Revolution. Toned, with some foxing, yet in remarkably fine condition.
    2. The Edinburgh Evening Courant from two dates: Saturday, December 21, 1782, and Monday, December 23, 1782; each four pages and 11" x 18". Contains annotations in black ink and news of parliamentary debates on the provisional treaty with America, which was eventually signed in 1783 as the Treaty of Paris. Both copies are weak at the center fold with some separation; toned with some stains, but all text is readable. Very good.
