(Revere, Paul) The Bloody Massacre perpetuated in King Street BOSTON on March 5th 1770 by a party of the 29th Regt. An excellent reprint of Paul Revere's original print, being a copper-plate engraving (by William F. Stratton), 1832, 10¼ x 8¾ inch plate, printed in black ink, on a 13 x 11inch sheet of cream-colored, laid, watermarked paper. This facsimile is described in Brigham's Paul Revere's Engravings (p. 71) and is shown in plate 22. Brigham notes that this reprint "copied the original Revere print as faithfully as any engraver could copy it.The engraver honestly identified his print by inserting the line 'Copy Right Secured' between the poem and the list of 'Sufferers,' and at the bottom he engraved the line, 'Boston (Fac-Simile) Republished, at 15 Water St. March 5, 1832.'" Brigham adds, "The plate, although unsigned in any way, was engraved by William F. Stratton, an excellent Boston engraver of his day." The paper has some chipping and minor paper loss in the right margin and one tear in the left margin, none of these touching the plate, nor would they be visible when framed. A print exactly like this one sold for $1100 in our September 20, 2003 sale.
Estimated Value $600 - 800.

Realized $633
