From Canterbury during the Revolutionary War...
Item # 208954 THE KENTISH GAZETTE, Canterbury, England, 1780 This is one of the more decorative & displayable mastheads from the Revolutionary War era to be had. Note the ornate lettering and the engravings on either side of the masthead. The issue is complete in 4 pages, is folio size, has mostly ads on the front page with various news on the inside pages. There are some very minor references to the Revolutionary War with nothing significant to note. There is some browning and some minor repairs but otherwise the issue is rather good. A very rare title and the first issue I have been able to offer from 18th century Canterbury. The photo below is generic, however the issue you receive will have a similar look with a similar amount of browning or spotting but will be dated 1780. A rare opportunity!
