Untrimmed issue with a full back page tax stamp...
Item # 208509
January 1, 1714
THE SPECTATOR , London, 1714 (with full back page red ink stamp) This is one of the more famous "coffee-house" newspapers of the early 18th century, done by the famed Addison & Steele. Although we have sold many genuine issues of this title through the years, this may be our first opportunity to offer an issue with untrimmed margins and a full red-inked tax stamp at the top of the back page. And in nice condition save for a few minor margin tears. A single sheet newspaper measuring about 8 1/2 by 13 inches. The photo below is "generic" however the issue you receive will have a similar look and will be dated 1712.
