Pre-1800 American Views on Great Britain

Embedded in the Evans Early American Imprint Collection, a database of almost 5,000 items, will be found hundreds of references to American reaction against Great Britain. For instance, inter alia, read No standing army in the British colonies; or An address to the inhabitants of the colony of New-York. Against unlawful standing armies (1773); Considerations on the propriety of imposing taxes in the British colonies, for the purpose of raising a revenue, by act of Parliament (1765);  and American independence the interest and glory of Great Britain; containing arguments which prove, that not only in taxation, but in trade, manufactures, and government, the colonies are entitled to an entire independency on the British legislature….(1776).
