Historic GREAT FIRE OF LONDON Medieval City Conflagration 1666 British Newspaper


eBay Fixed Price Item # 373046230616

Offered is an original, historic, & collectible old newspaper: THE LONDON GAZETTE, England, September 24, 1666 * The Great London Fire period coverage * Among the earliest of 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.

The text reads in part: "His Majesty having been graciously pleased by h... See More

eBay Fixed Price Item # 373007417663

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.

And in the next column a report from Whitehall: "Th... See More
