Some discussion of the Treaty of Aix la Chapelle...
Item # 210697 THE GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE, London, October, 1748 One of the better items in this issue is discussion of the proceedings at Aix la Chapelle towards the treaty that would end tthe War of the Austrian Succession in Europe. A bit further on is: "The Substance of the Articles of the Definitive Treaty of Peace" which takes over a full page.
Present is the plate of coats-of-arms, but lacking is the map called for.
Near the back is the "Historical Chronicle" which has the latest news reports of the day.
Complete in 48 pages, 5 by 8 inches, full title/contents page features an engraving of St. John's Gate.
A very nice magazine from the "mother country" before the French & Indian War with a wide range of varied content. This was the first periodical to use the word "magazine" in its title, having begun in 1731 and lasting until 1907.
