Lot 2
[AMERICAN REVOLUTION] Printed broadsheet listing British casualties at the Battle of Long Island with similar lists of casualties at Lexington and Concord and Bunker Hill.
[N.p.: N.d. circa 1777 (?)]. One sheet of laid paper printed as a broadsheet on one side and as two pages on the other, the visible area 15 x 8 1/2 inches (28 x 22 cm); in a double-sided frame. Folds with one small visible split, well preserved overall, unexamined out of frame.
An interesting listing of British troops killed, wounded or missing from three major early battles of the American Revolution, likely emanating from a contemporary English publication. The listing from the Battle of Long Island printed as a broadsheet within a decorative border and headed "A List of the killed, wounded, and missing of His Majesty's Forces, under the Command of his Excellency the Honourable General HOWE, in several engagements and skirmishes with the Provincials, from the taking of Long Island, August 27th, to the close of that campaign, the 8th of December, 1776." The other side with two reports: "A List of the killed and wounded, and those made prisoners or missing, of His Majesty's Forces, under the command of Lt. Col. SMITH, of the 10th Reg. Maj. PITCAIRNE of the Marines, and the brigade under Lord PERCY. At the Battles of Lexington and Concord, April 19th, 1775" and "A List of the Killed and Wounded, of His Majesty's Forces at the Engagement of Bunker's-hill. June 17th, 1775," these reports signed in print by Thomas Gage.
