Connecticut Colonial

1750 Printing of the Royal Charter for CT, Granted by His Majesty King Charles II

Significant 1750 printing of the 1662 royal charter for Connecticut, one of only two charters granting colonists the right to popularly elect their governors. New London: Printed and Sold by Timothy Green, 1750. 12" x 7.5", disbound, original self-wrappers. 6pp. Marginal tears, and overall expected browning.

Of the original colonies, only "Connecticut and Rhode Island, which had popularly elected governors under their royal charters, made the transition from colony to state simply by altering the name of the body politic, declaring that the 'excellent constitutions of government' derived from their 'pious ancestors' were still in force, and tacking on a bill of rights" (Morison, 67-8, 275). It was this chartered independence that substantially defined Connecticut's role in the history of American independence. This is the 1750 printing of the 1662 royal charter. Printed by Timothy Green, who moved from Massachusetts to "New London in 1714 by invitation of the Connecticut Assembly and until his retirement ... remained the colony's official printer" (Winterich, 39). Likely originally bound as part of the 1750 first edition of "Connecticut Acts & Laws". (Johnson, 520. Evans, 6479).

This item comes with a Certificate from John Reznikoff, a premier authenticator for both major 3rd party authentication services, PSA and JSA (James Spence Authentications), as well as numerous auction houses.
