AN ALARM TO THE LEGISLATURE OF THE PROVINCE - [Seabury, Samuel] - 1775. [1277782]
New York: Printed for James Rivington, 1775. 13,[2]pp. Modern half morocco and marbled boards. Heavy stains in margins. Contemporary ownership signature on titlepage. Good, untrimmed. An important installment in Samuel Seabury's series of pamphlets attacking the policies of the Continental Congress and other Revolutionary bodies. Seabury, the leading Tory spokesman in the American colonies, here addresses the Legislature of New York: "Only shew your willingness towards an accommodation, by acknowledging the supreme legislative authority of Great-Britain, and I dare confidently pronounce the attainment of whatever you with propriety, can ask, and the legislature of Great- Britain with honour concede." Needless to say, Seabury was unpopular. His works were frequently tarred, feathered, and nailed to a whipping post. Scarce. EVANS 14453. SABIN 78559. AMERICAN INDEPENDENCE 194. NAIP w037163. HEWLETT 194.
