A bit more blogrolling, and Newton and the Counterfeiter’s latest notice

Bell’s Boston 1775 to my blogroll.  Bell writes on the roots of the American Revolution in my current meatspace domicile, aka the Hub of the Universe, Athens of America, Somerville’s neighbor….Boston.

Beware of PhiloBiblos, by the way.  Too many juicy links…which provides me an excuse for a second hit of xkcd in a single day:
