King George's Crown --- Turn'd Upside Down! The Gaspee
Providence: printed and sold at No. 25 High Street, with 200 other kings of songs [by Henry Trumbull], 1832. Broadside (approx. 10¼" x 8"), text in double column beneath the running head and divided by type ornaments enclosing the imprint; inverted wood-engraving of the royal arms of Great Britain above title; previous folds, some wrinkling and one or two small holes not affecting text; good or better. An attractive broadside commemorating the burning of the British customs schooner Gaspee in Narragansett Bay in 1772, one of the first acts of hostility leading up to the American Revolution. Originally published under title: A New Song called the Gaspee (Providence: printed for the purchasers, [1772] - see Shipton & Mooney 42361, Alden 492). In the Providence directories Trumbull is listed at 25 High Street from 1826 to 1836. I'm guessing this would have been printed on the 60th anniversary of the destruction of the Gaspee. Not in American Imprints; Brown only in OCLC.
