Descripción

8pp, caption title [as issued], bound in modern marbled wrappers. Small blank forecorner chipping to first leaf, lightly spotted, else Very Good. This rare Petition-- from Pennsylvania settlers on lands in Luzerne, Northumberland, and Northampton Counties claimed by Connecticut-- reviews the history of the Western Land Dispute between Pennsylvania and Connecticut. Examined in detail are the 1782 judicial decree terminating the rights of the State of Connecticut [but not rights of private claimants], the litigation brought by Connecticut claimants, and attempts of the Pennsylvania Legislature to adjust those claims. Disliking the adjustment, the settlers here request federal intervention. The Committee Report and the Vote on the Question, rejecting the settlers' request, are printed here. Bristol and Shipton call this an 1800 imprint; this is impossible, because the Petition refers to events in February 1801. NAIP, which records only 18th century American imprints, does not list it. American Imprints says it was printed in 1802. FIRST EDITION. AI 2874 [1]. Bristol 11109. Shipton & Mooney 49135. OCLC 55642207 [7] [as of September 2014]. N° de ref. de la librería 20679
