1780.001: Journal of the Senate (October 1779).

Published: 1780

Full Title: Journal of the Senate. Anno Domini, 1779.

Author: Virginia. General Assembly. Senate.

Place Issued: Williamsburg

Issuing Press: Clarkson & Davis

Description: 76 p. (fol.).


Assembly met from October 4 to December 24, 1779; journal was issued in January 1780. This is possibly the last non-newspaper imprint produced by the Clarkson & Davis press; the government of Virginia relocated to Richmond in early 1780, but Clarkson & Davis were not able to finance such a move. Thus the competing firm of Dixon & Hunter, which did relocate, became the de facto printer to the Commonwealth, without title, completing all other public documents in 1780. No other Clarkson & Davis titles from 1780 are now known.
