One of the Most Important Documents of the American Revolution

    [American Continental Congress]. Extracts From the Votes and Proceedings of the American Continental Congress, Held at Philadelphia, on the 5th of September, 1774. Containing The Bill of Rights, a List of Grievances, Occasional Resolves, the Association, an Address to the People of Great-Britain, a Memorial to the Inhabitants of the British American Colonies, and an Address to the Inhabitants of Quebec. New-London: Timothy Green, 1774. Quarto. [2], 6-[80] pages. Formerly string bound, now loose. From page 40 on, 1.5" section at the top of the remaining pages lacking, affecting text. Damp stain on the title page, scattered foxing and staining throughout. Pages tatty along the edges. A fair copy of this rare early Continental Congress imprint.

    The back page of this copy bears the manuscript inscription: "United States of America Jos. Williams Massachusetts". The inside back page also has several men's names in manuscript including "Luther Lomis", "Libou Johnson", and "John Leath". This is one of the most important documents of the American Revolution. Typically found in the condensed 16-page version, this copy despite its faults is scarce indeed.
