This four page newspaper has considerable news from Europe throughout, with the entire front page taken up with ads, including several accompanied by decorative woodcuts (including three ships). The issue also has a nice woodcut masthead (although slightly close-trimmed at the top).
Complete in 4 pages and in very nice, clean condition. Measures about 11 1/2 by 17 1/2 inches.
Additional 18th century issues with both plate and die numbers, in varying titles, are available upon request.
