large product photo   Colonial Broadsides - $5.00

Containing an interesting assortment of public notices of the Continental era.


  • Notice for an Upcoming Slave Auction - This small (7 x 10) poster gives notice of an upcoming slave auction of men, women, boys, and girls in Charleston.
  • A Short Warning to all Desperate and Prophane Swearers, Cursers, and Damners, Etc - The name says it all. This warning cites several Bible references in an attempt to redeem those who use vulgar language. A printed broadside posted in London.
  • 1775 Property Auction Notice - This bilingual notice advertised an upcoming auction of property in Germantown, Pennsylvania. It is printed in English and German.
  • Robbery Notice - This poster went up in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, northeast of Philadelphia, in 1785. An excellent description of what a rather well off man would have on his person (which he was robbed of), and a great paper to post at your establishment.
