  • Part of the library digital collection of Early American Imprints, Series I: Evans, 1639-1800
  • Copper plate engraving of a female figure, representing the American colonies, with her limbs cut off. Followed by thirty-four engraved lines of "Explanation" and "Moral."
  • The original caricature was invented by Benjamin Franklin while in England in February 1766 for use on message cards that he distributed to officials to encourage the repeal of the Stamp Act. This broadside edition was apparently issued in America sometime between 1767 and 1769; cf. Wolf, Edwin. "Benjamin Franklin's Stamp Act cartoon" in Proceedings of the American Philosophical Society, v. 99, 1955, p. 388-396
