Havanna... Electricity



Item # 561196 THE GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE, London, April, 1762  

* Puerto Rico - Florida

This magazine still has the full page plate of "Plan of the City and Harbour of Havanna" which shows much detail (see photos). This map measures 5 by 8 inches. There is also a report near the back which relates to it titled: "Weak State of the Island of Jamaica". This map is NOT included in this issue.
There is also another article which begins: "Porto Rico is a large Spanish island, well fortified; and Hispaniola belonging to both France & Spain is much larger & stronger...by taking the Havannah & St. Jago, we shall take the whole island of Cuba which is 500 miles long...And as our taking Cuba and Florida, will bring Spain to reasonable terms, the taking Mississippi & the Caribee Islands, which we have already conquered, may bring France to reasonable terms also..." with more.
There is also an interesting report concerning the trial of seven men for piracy.
Complete in 96 pages, measures 5 by 8 inches with full title/index page which features an engraving of St. John's Gate, and is in nice condition. This issue is missing the map of Jamaica.
