Paris, 1783. pp., printed in double columns. Quarto. Later marbled boards, leather label. Near fine. On January 20, 1783 terms for a general armistice between England and France and Spain were reached, two months after terms with the United States had been worked out. A general armistice was agreed upon for February 4. This supplement to the ROYAL GAZETTE was probably the first publication of the terms of the British-French agreement. The French advantage after Yorktown had been largely lost with De Grasse's defeat in the Caribbean in 1782, so the net effect was largely a return to status quo, with Caribbean possessions of both sides restored. Furthermore, England's claims to Newfoundland were maintained, and mutual fishing rights off the Canadian coast were agreed upon. DAVENPORT 169. (Inventory #: WRCAM34310)
