Boston: Edes & Gill, 1769. 8vo. 108 pp. Nicely bound in modern 1/2 calf over marbled boards, title label in gilt and decorative gilt devices in compartments. Contents with some off-setting/toning, else a Very Good example. ******************************************* First edition. An important tract on the causes of the American Revolution. This pamphlet was one of the first major "leaks' in American history. Bernard was governor of Massachusetts during the Stamp Act Crisis and was not well liked by the colonists. He was replaced as governor by Thomas Hutchinson in 1769, after being burned in effigy. He had made his feelings clear to various officials in London, while expressing strong views on how to stamp out dissent in Boston. Copies of the papers were obtained by parties (still unknown), who published them. A firestorm of protests followed, and the resulting ill- feeling only added to the growing anger of the colonials. "On the turbulent state of affairs in Boston resulting from the Stamp Act" - Howes. EVANS 11176. AMERICAN CONTROVERSY 69a. SABIN 4923. ESTC W13583. HOWES B383.
