about

<br /> The 18th century was a wealth of knowledge, exploration and rapidly growing technology and expanding record-keeping made possible by advances in the printing press. In its determination to preserve the century of revolution, Gale initiated a revolution of its own: digitization of epic proportions to preserve these invaluable works in the largest archive of its kind. Now for the first time these high-quality digital copies of original 18th century manuscripts are available in print, making them highly accessible to libraries, undergraduate students, and independent scholars.<br />Delve into what it was like to live during the eighteenth century by reading the first-hand accounts of everyday people, including city dwellers and farmers, businessmen and bankers, artisans and merchants, artists and their patrons, politicians and their constituents. Original texts make the American, French, and Industrial revolutions vividly contemporary.<br />++++<br />The below data was compiled from various identification fields in the bibliographic record of this title.

[3]): The philanthropist; or, A good twelve cents worth of political love powder, for the fair daughters and patriotic sons of Virginia. This appears to be a reissue of the sheets printed by John and James D. Westcott of Alexandria in 1799 (Evans 36695), with a cancel title page printed to exploit Washington's recommendatory letter. The value of the "political love powder" (and the price of the pamphlet?) have increased from twelve to twenty-five cents. E.E.F. Skeel, in Mason Locke Weems: his works and ways, v. 1, 1929, adduces a first issue of the sheets without title page, and describes the present issue as the second issue. She was not aware of the issue with the Westcott imprint, which was likely the first issue. The Maryland Hist. Soc. copy recorded by Skeel is probably no more than an imperfect copy of this or the "Westcott" issue.<br /><br />&lt;imprintFull&gt;[Alexandria, Va. : Printed by John and James D. Westcott, 1799]. &lt;collation&gt;[2], 30 p. ; 8° <br />
