Description

Of the four contemporary printings of the United States Constitution, by far the most graphically dramatic. It is also the first Connecticut printing. The New-Haven Gazette, and the Connecticut Magazine, which ran between February 16, 1786, and January 1, 1789, was a hybrid, but clearly deserves mention as a true magazine. It was a consequential literary and political journal, respected and quoted by its peers, ably edited by Josiah Meigs.
