New London Imprints 994. A scarce New London printing of one of the most important documents of the American Revolution, which digests the most important proceedings of the Continental Congress between 5 September and 26 October 1774. This publishes the Declaration of Rights, passed Oct. 14, in which Congress asserts the colonists' rights as Englishmen and claims they were violated by the Stamp Act; the Townsend Act; the Coercive Acts; and the Quebec Acts. The Association has the Colonies bind themselves together in respect to neither import nor consume British goods. The addresses justify to the British people the acts of the Congress. Timothy Green produced two editions in 1774, this edition of sixteen pages and another of seventy pages. The text is the same, this edition is printed in much smaller typeface.
