A very nice pre-Revolutionary War magazine from the "mother country" with a wide range of varied content including news of the day, political reports, literary items, and other unusual tidbits. This was the first periodical to use the word "magazine" in its title, having begun in 1731 and lasting until 1907.
Among the articles noted in the table of contents are:
"...Speech on Frauds in Tobacco" "Excise Laws Reform'd" "A Motion on the Land Tax Bill" "The Druggist's Petitoni" "OF Franking New Papers" "Of an Unpopular Queen" "King Charles II, Characteriz'd" "On the History of the Puritans" "On Christmas Pye" & more.
Near the back under "Foreign Advices" is an article reading:
"Angria, the famous Pyrate, who infested the Indian Seas has made a truce with the English and sent the Gov. of Bombay 63 English prisoners." (see).
Complete in 52 pgs. with full title/index page. Measures about 5 by 8 inches, good condition.
This is from just the third year of this magazine's existence & before any maps or plates were included.
