THE RIGHTS OF GREAT BRITAIN ASSERTED AGAINST THE CLAIMS OF AMERICA: BEING AN ANSWER TO THE DECLARATION OF THE GENERAL CONGRESS
London. 1776.. [2],92pp. plus folding table. Lacks the half title. Modern three-quarter morocco and marbled boards, spine gilt. Modern bookplate on front pastedown. Negligible soiling. Very good plus. First edition of this important political tract, replying to the American Congress' "Declaration...setting forth the causes and necessity of their taking up arms," which is printed in the rear of the pamphlet. Authorship of this work is in doubt, Adams crediting James Macpherson, who was retained by Lord North as a political writer, and Howes crediting Sir John Dalrymple. The pamphlet, which was widely disseminated, sets forth the ministerial position on the situation in America. This is the first of over twenty editions, making it one of the most widely circulated pamphlets of the English side of the debate. Only a handful of copies of this edition are in ESTC. ESTC N12881. AMERICAN CONTROVERSY 75-95a. HOWES D37.
