Boston: Printed by Edes and Gill..., 1773. 126pp. Bound to style in half calf and marbled boards. Contemporary ownership inscription on titlepage. Light foxing and toning. Very good. "These speeches were printed in the MASSACHUSETTS GAZETTE AND BOSTON WEEKLY NEWS-LETTER between January and March of 1773. The House ordered 700 copies printed for itself and 100 for the Council on March 6, 1773" - Adams. "When [Samuel] Adams organized the correspondence committees in November 1772 and initiated the movement by publishing the 'Rights of the Colonists,' Hutchinson gave life to the movement by delivering before the General Court, on Jan. 6, 1773, an elaborately argued address designed to prove that since 'no line can be drawn between the supreme authority of Parliament and the total independence of the colonies' the Parliamentary supremacy must be admitted; and 'if the supremacy of Parliament shall no longer be denied, it will follow that the mere exercise of its authority can be no grievance'" - DAB. The complete text of this address is printed herein, along with other speeches made during the same session. These speeches immediately preceded the explosive publication of Hutchinson's letter back to England, leaked via Franklin. HOWES H854. EVANS 12856. AMERICAN INDEPENDENCE 97. DAB IX, pp.439-43. SABIN 34086.
