Scarce July 1776 Magazine ~ Mohawk Indian Chief Joseph Brandt~independence Day:
For your consideration is a very rare piece of American and British history. This is a July 1776 magazine from London England. It is filled with articles concerning the issues of the time. The articles include the writers report of a recent visit to London by Thayendanegea,, also known as Joseph Brandt, Chief of the Mohawk Indians. Brandt was a loyal ally of Great Britain before and after the American Revolution. However, he was conflicted by which loyalties would be best for his people. He visited London to meet with Queen Anne to better understand Britain's position vis a vis the colonies. His fighting warriors were estimated at 3,000 strong. Fascinating magazine and very important primary source material for collectors and historians of the Revolutionary War and American Revolution!
The magazine measures 5 x 8 1/2 and has all pages (339-392) attached to the glued spine. However, the two illustrations referred to at the bottom of the table of contents have been lost over the 240 years of the publication.
The magazine is GUARANTEED to be vintage (July 1776) and not a reproduction or later copy.... Buy with confidence.

After 35+ years of collecting historical Native Americana, I have been incrementally selling my collection on . Most of the images and documents have not seen another collectors hands in many years.... The material includes all formats of photographs, Real Photo and lithographic postcards, broadsides and documents from the early 1700's to 1930..... It also includes interesting non-Native material and vernacular photographs. See my current listings and watch for others.... The collection has been safely stored in archival museum boxes and in the same condition as when I acquired them.
Always interested in any response that might shed additional light on this item.
Thank you for visiting my listing!
