"The scarcest of his works: the greater part of the edition was destroyed by fire in the printing office, and was not reprinted entire. An abridged edition was published in New York, by G.W. & A.I. Matsell, 1836. This is the first publication in the United States openly directed against the Christian religion."

"This entirely new edition brings together all of Philip Larkin's poems. In addition to those that appear in Collected Poems (1988) and Early Poems and Juvenilia (2005), some unpublished pieces from Larkin's typescripts and workbooks are included, as well as verse--by turns scurrilous, satirical, affectionate, and sentimental--that had been tucked away in his letters. For the first time, Larkin's poems are given a comprehensive commentary. This draws critically upon, and substantially extends, the accumulated scholarship on Larkin, and covers closely relevant historical contexts, persons and places, allusions and echoes, and linguistic usage. Prominence is given to the poet's comments on his own work, which often outline the circumstances that gave rise to a poem or state that he was trying to achieve. Larkin often played down his literariness, but his poetry enrichingly alludes to and echoes the writings of many others. Archie Burnett's commentary establishes Larkin as a more complex and more literary poet than many readers have suspected."--Publisher's website

Introducing William Goddard, "Printer in Philadelphia and Baltimore now on his tour to Portsmouth, calls on you at Marblehead...Considered as the originator of so salutary a plan to the Colonies he deserves our kindest notice were he less the Gentleman, the man of sense and spirit than he is : but in every light you view him you will find him agreeable."
Boston Committee of Correspondence records by Boston Committee of Correspondence( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Boston Committee of Correspondence was formed at the Boston Town Meeting of November 2, 1772 in response to the British government's decision to pay the governor and Superior Court judges of Massachusetts with Crown stipends, thereby making them dependent on the Crown rather than the people in assembly. With the participation of Samuel Adams and others, the Committee prepared statements of the colonists' rights and the violation of those rights by Great Britain, and sent them to other Massachusetts towns in pamphlet form, asking for their support and advice. In response to what became known as the Boston Pamphlet, similar committees formed in towns across Massachusetts and in other American colonies, helping to create a network of colonial communication ultimately leading to independence from Great Britain. The Boston Committee of Correspondence records, dated 1772-1784, document the Committee's initiatives in colonial political action in Massachusetts, from the writing of the Boston Pamphlet in November 1772 through the early months of war with Great Britain in 1775, as well as the Committee's contact with other colonies. The records also document its continued work as the Committee of Correspondence, Inspection and Safety, 1777-1784, largely concerned with investigating suspected enemies of the American cause
