About This Item

1776. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 2 volumes. Very Good. 8vo. Modern ½-leather-backed marbled boards, gilt lettering on spine. London: Printed for J. Almon.

Rare untrimmed set of John Almons record of the events of the American Revolution as they occurred, including the first printing in Britain of the Declaration of Independence. (Church 1115, Sabin 955, and Howes A-182).

There is no better contemporary source for the events of the American Revolution. Church describes the importance of The Remembrancer as follows: One of the chief and most reliable sources of information regarding the revolution. It is a veritable mine of information, containing every authentic paper relative to the American Revolution, whether published in England or America, by the British Ministry or the American Congress, and is even today the original authority from which much of our information is obtained. The collection has a sympathetic leaning towards the cause of the colonists, or at least against the course pursued by the ministry. Both volumes include all of the relevant proceedings of the Continental Congress, Proceedings and Resolutions of the various assemblies of the several American Colonies, Acts of the British Parliament, and Proclamations of King George III. The set begins with official reactions to the events at Lexington and Concord, and the subsequent British closing of the port of Boston. The first volume opens with the Proceedings of the Provincial Congress of Georgia, including the message of the Congress to the Governor of Georgia, the Governors response, and subsequent resolutions of the Congress detailing their sense of the abuses of the British Crown.
