THE WORCESTER MAGAZINE. FOR THE FOURTH WEEK IN SEPTEMBER, 1787. VOL. III. NUMB. XXVI.

[Worcester: Isaiah Thomas, 1787]. Pages 335-352, with caption title as issued. Upper margins of several leaves trimmed closely, shaving portions of several page numbers, a couple of printer flaws with effect on a few letters. Good+, in modern pale grey paper over boards.

This early, rare printing of the proposed Constitution-- certainly one of the earliest-- appears at pages 349-352, under the heading, "Proceedings of the Federal Convention." Isaiah Thomas started the Worcester Magazine in April 1786. It was "The octavo continuation of Isaiah Thomas' newspaper, The Massachusetts Spy, necessitated by his opposition to the tariffs on paper and the tax upon advertisements in newspapers, which were repealed in April 1788" [Lomazow].
