Issuing Press: Thomas Nicolson

Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.]; 28 cm. x 19 cm. (broadside).


A handbill describing the reasons for appealing a decree made in May 1805 in the Chancery case of Holliday v. Coleman, asking for a reversal. Sheet lacks colophon; as Call was attorney for the appellants, it is most likely that he used Nicolson's press for this notice, as a consequence of his ongoing relationship with Nicolson in publishing his reports on cases before this same court; furthermore, Nicolson had become the printer of choice for legal titles by this time; these factors inform the attribution here.
