Descripción

[4], 149, [2 publisher advts], [1 blank] pp. Modern paper over boards, printed title label on spine. Two blank corner chips, archival repair to gutter of title page. Else Fine. This is the first London edition. The first edition, which issued from New York in 1777, is exceedingly rare, as is the New York 1780. "Practically all copies of original edition destroyed by a New York mob" [Howes]. Galloway had been the civil administrator of Philadelphia during the winter of 1777-1778, serving under the orders of Howe, who had "found his services invaluable in the Philadelphia campaign" [DAB]. Upon its capture by American forces he fled to England, becoming "the spokesman of the American Loyalists" [id.] and attacking Howe for incompetence. Here he gives some unwelcome advice to Howe on how he could have won the War. FIRST ENGLISH EDITION. Howes G47aa. JCB European Americana 2640. Adams Controversy 80-35a.
