Three copies of The London Gazette, reporting the resolution of the first Nootka Crisis of 1789-1790
London Gazette 1790 - Three copies of The London Gazette, reporting the resolution of the first Nootka Crisis of 1789-1790, in which Spain seized British ships and sailed them south to New Spain/Mexico. These negotiations led to substantiation of British rights on Vancouver Island, and the eventual border between Oregon and California, along the 42 parallel North, and to British sovereignty (in 1846) then Canadian, in the northern part of the Columbia region (between California and Russian America/Alaska), that is now British Columbia. Number 13259 (November 23-27 1790) reports the speech two both Houses in Parliament by George III, in which he says that suitable reparations have been obtained for the ‘Act of Violence committed at Nootka’, p 709, pp. 8 (709-716), with two red revenue stamps as applied to periodicals. Small folio, London: Edward Johnston. 13251, for November 4 1790, saying that the Convention had been agreed and would be signed on November 27, p 1, London: Edward Johnston. The third issue, 13224 for August 5, pp. 3 (589-591), publishes the Spanish declaration indicating willingness to make restitution for the seizure of British vessels at Nootka Sound. Vancouver was to re-negotiate the settlement in person in 1792 at Nootka Sound; the third issue also printed by Johnston, folio and with revenue stamps. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
