When Was the First Book Printed in NYC?

New-England's Spirit of Persecution Transmitted to Pennsilvania, by Quaker polemicist George Keith, was printed by William Bradford in 1693. Bradford, whose offices were on Hanover Square in lower Manhattan, remained New York's sole printer for over 30 years. He was the publisher of New York's first newspaper, The New-York Gazette in 1725.
