Revolutionary War Broadside Poem On Taxation For Sale

Revolutionary War Broadside Poem On Taxation

Broadside "AMERICAN TAXATION - Or The Spirit Of Seventy-six, Exemplified in a Song Written in the Golden Days Which Tried Men's Soul's" Revolutionary War Era c. 1783 Revolutionary War Era, "George Washington" & "AMERICAN TAXATION," Printed Broadside, 36 Stanza Poem, Choice Very Fine. Fully titled: "AMERICAN TAXATION - Or the spirit of Seventy-six, exemplified in a song written in the golden days which tried men's Soul's." This is an exceedingly rare, attractive Broadside which measures 18" x 11" being boldly printed in rich black, on fine quality early wove paper. It is archivally and expertly laid down onto an acid-free tissue for preservation. There are some slight minor marginal tears in the top and bottom selvage, with a piece of the upper far right corner lacking, being well away from any of the printed text. This outstanding, 36 stanza song or poem, which is directed against the British Taxation of the American colonies, a source of ire ("Taxation Without Representation") that eventually led to the Revolutionary War. Some sample verses read, in part: "While I relate my story, Americans give ear, Of Britain's fading glory you presently shall hear; I'll give a true relation, attend to what I say, Concerning the taxation of North America... We have a bold commander who fears not sword or gun, A second Alexander, his name is WASHINGTON; His men are all collected and ready for the 'fray, To fight they are directed for North America...." This work was originally written during the Revolutionary War but was not published and printed until 1783 in Hartford, CT. The light wove paper and typeface indicates that this Broadside was probably printed as a patriotic piece sometime about 1783 or so, at the official end of the Revolutionary War with the signing of our our Peace Treaty with England. This is a most important printing of the period, as it touches upon many of the reasons for fighting the Revolutionary War. This version is very similar to another period Broadside we have offered, which had printed upon it, "Sold, wholesale and retail, by L. Deming, No. 62, Hanover Street, 2nd door from Friend Street, Boston." That example was in our EAHA sale of August 23, 2003, Lot 313 and sold for $4,025. We also sold a very similar example of this style Broadside for $3,200 in our EAHA sale of April 22, 2006 which was in lower quality. This extremely historic and important Revolutionary War Era printed Broadside is good for display and includes a commemoration of American Taxation by the British and George Washington. Evans 18174.
