LETTERS FROM A FARMER IN PENNSYLVANIA, TO THE INHABITANTS OF THE BRITISH COLONIES
Philadelphia: Printed by David Hall and William Sellers, 1768.. 71pp. Antique style half calf and marbled boards. Contemporary notation on titlepage, minor loss to top outer corner, slightly affecting one letter. Light foxing, otherwise very good. Second Philadelphia edition, printed the same year as the first. First published in three Pennsylvania newspapers in December of the preceding year, Dickinson's LETTERS... were reprinted whole or in part in virtually every other newspaper in the English Colonies. In book form, almost a dozen different printings appeared in the next half decade, and Howes characterizes this work as the "earliest serious study into colonial legal rights." "The LETTERS, although very pacific in tone, showed wide knowledge both of the practical economics of the situation and of the broad legal principles underlying English liberty and created a deep impression here and abroad" - DAB. Only a handful of copies in ESTC. EVANS 10879. HOWES D329. AMERICAN INDEPENDENCE 54b. SABIN 20044. ESTC W31741.
