A Bid For Liberty

Philadelphia: William Penn Association, 1937. First edition. Wraps. Near Fine. Original cream colored wrappers, lettered in black. Being an account of the Resolutions and Declarations of Independence Adopted in the Colony of Pennsylvania, 1774 to 1776. Compiled by The Workers of the Federal Writers' Project of the Works Progress Administration in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The format of this work is quite different from other FWP works and the publishers seem quite proud of the results. "Wide margins, on which polemical writers - and readers - could jot their notes, were familiar in a day when pamphlets were the principal ammunition in the crossfire of controversy. A touch of antiquity is given the text by the use of 11 point Caslon Oldstyle, with quoations set in 10 point italics of the same type face." A lovely copy in all respects. Dykes, #280.
