    More Information:

    The Annual Register, or a View of History, Politics, and Literature... London: Printed for J. Dodsley [and others], 1776-1799.

    Twelve octavo volumes. Mixed editions. Bound in a combination of tree calf and regular calf, some full, some over marbled paper covered boards. Bindings with varying degrees of wear and soiling. Three volumes with detached boards, several others rebacked or recased. The "For the Year 1775" volume is in need of rebinding, the backstrip is lacking and the textblock is split in several places, there are loose pages, few of which are missing [including H8 and K8]. The 1790 volume is an ex library book with institutaional stamps and markings. Bookplates. Pages with edge wear, corner bends, occasional holograph names and annotations.

    Fascinating contemporary British view of the world, including two articles from John Hancock in 1775 on the growing unrest in the Colonies and the printing of an unanswered petition to "His Majesty" for peaceful solutions. The rest is, as they say, history.
