4 pp., folio, 10 x 15 3/4 in. (Disbound, partial separation at centerfold, occasional spotting/staining, chipping to edges.)

Beginning with three columns of text on the front page and covering five columns total, this Colonial-era newspaper contains long, detailed coverage of the Agreement of Nonimportation of British Goods into the American Colonies until the British repeal all taxes on the American Colonies. The issue also contains an inside-page report of the erection of a "Liberty Pole” in New York City as a symbol of Colonial resistance to British taxes. This was printed just weeks before the Boston Massacre that would sway public opinion in the Colonies against British rule, and act to hasten the onset of the Revolutionary War.
