NEW YORK BROADSIDES, 1762-1779.

The New York broadsides here catalogued were part of a collection originally brought together by Gerard Bancker, who served New York, province and state, as assistant clerk of the house of representatives, as deputy treasurer under Peter Van Brugh Livingston during the revolution, and as state treasurer from 1789 to 1798. The broadsides remained in the Bancker family until they were sold by auction for the estate of the late James E. Bancker, in Philadelphia, March 25, 1898, at which sale they were dispersed. The following eighty-six broadsides, comprising about three-fifths of the collection sold, came afterwards into the possession of the New York Public Library.
