Descripción

Single leaf, folded once into 4 pages, with text in 3 columns. Faintly dust-soiled; some small closed tears and chipping along the edges; small, crooked tear (about 3") in third column of text, affecting pages 1-2, but not infringing much on legibility. Certainly a fragile item, kept safe in a mylar sleeve and custom cloth portfolio, gilt-stamped (inexplicably) "Gazette of the United States / July 4, 1789" on the upper board. The front page includes "Discourses on Davilla," No. XIX; notice of a Congressional "Act for the relief of the persons therein mentioned or described" (wounded or disabled soldiers and officers, and their widows and/or wives and children), enacted by Frederick Muhlenberg, John Adams, George Washington; a resolution regarding land surveys "in the Western Territory, made under the direction of the late geographer, Thomas Hutchins"; an account of the National Assembly of France, and a weird little blurb on playing cards. (It bears quoting in full: "Cards were invented in the reign of Charles VI, King of France, to amuse him during the intervals of that disorder which conducted him to the grave. The world would have suffered no loss, had his majesty been suffered to die in peace without this invention.") This cataloguer is loathe to envision a world without playing cards.
