Published: 1783

Full Title: William A. Bayley, Norfolk, Virginia, July 9th, 1783.

Author: Bayley, William A.

Place Issued: Uncertain

Issuing Press: Uncertain

Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.]; 6 x 11 cm. (bookplate).


Only known copy at the Library Company of Philadelphia came from the Michael Zinman Collection of Early American Imprints; Zinman assigned a production location of Norfolk based on the imprint's text [entirety of title above]; but no press was operating in the war-ravaged port town then. Hence both location and press are uncertain; it could be a Maryland imprint (Baltimore or Annapolis) as easily as being a Virginia one (Richmond or Alexandria).
