Rare GREAT FIRE OF LONDON Bubonic Plague Era 1666 London England Old Newspaper


eBay Auction Item # 392737597892

Offered is an original, historic, & collectible old newspaper: LONDON GAZETTE, England, Oct. 11, 1666 * The Great London Fire Contemporary mentions of the Great Fire of London are quite uncommon, as this was one of the only newspapers in print at that time and they gave minimal coverage to this tragic event. However, this issue has not one but two references to the Fire on the reverse, the first reading: "Such as have settled in new habitations since the late Fire, and desire for the convenience of their correspondence, to publish the place of their present abode; or to give notice of Goods lost or found, may repair to the corner House in Bloomsbury ...where there is care taken for the receipts & publication of such advertisements."

Rare GREAT FIRE OF LONDON Bubonic Plague Era 1666 London England Old Newspaper


eBay Fixed Price Item # 372921416350

Offered is an original, historic, & collectible old newspaper: THE LONDON GAZETTE, England, January 28, 1666 (actually 1667 by today's calendar) * The Great London Fire It is very rare to find any period mention of the great London Fire of 1666 in newspapers of the day, certainly one reason being the dearth of publications in print at that time--very few beyond the London Gazette. The back page of this single sheet newspaper includes: "If any person have found any books or writings belonging to Arthur Tevor Esq. deceased, or to John Trevor, Esq; (lost in the removal in the late dreadful Fire) Let them give notice thereof to..." and further on is: "We are ordered to give notice that although the Herals Office, wherein the descents and Arms of the Nobility and Gentry of England were...

eBay Fixed Price Item # 392641603139

Offered is an original, historic, & collectible old newspaper: THE LONDON GAZETTE, England, Oct. 4, 1666 * The Great London Fire period coverage * Among the earliest newspapers to be had One of the greatest calamities and more notable events to strike London in its long history is the Great Fire which destroyed much of the city in September, 1666. Finding period references to it are exceedingly difficult, as the number of newspapers publishing in 1666 was extremely small, this title certainly being the most significant. Page 2 contains a brief report with a "Westminster" dateline of September 28, noting: "This day the House of Commons, reassuming the debate touching the City of London, resolved that the humble Thanks of the House should be given his Majesty for his great care a...
