PAUL REVERE (American, 1735-1818) THE BLOODY MASSACRE, PERPETRATED IN KING STREET BOSTON ON MARCH 5TH, 1770... engraving with hand coloring on laid paper; 10 1/4 x 9 1/8 inches; Property from the Estate of Elizabeth Storer, Needham, Massachusetts;Note: According to Clarence S. Brigham "Paul Revere's Boston Massacre is the most desirable of all of his engravings. It is the corner-stone of any American collection." The engraving was first distributed by itself as a handbill and later was incorporated into newspaper accounts of the incident. A cut down version of this print was used again by Revere in 1775 when he was commissioned to engrave Massachusetts paper money in 10, 12 and 18 shilling notes. According to Brigham, the original copper plate used is now housed in the he Archives Office at the State House in Boston. (Clarence S. Brigham, Paul Revere's Engravings, 1954, pp. 41-57)
