Map of Havana, Cuba & Porto Bello... King's Edict in Favor of the Jews...



Item # 574947
THE GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE, London, March, 1740

* Maps of Havana, Cuba, and Portbello, Panama
* Early reports from Georgia : slave insurrection
* Judaica item on the King's Edict

A nice, early issue of this exceedingly successful magazine, and the first periodical to use the word "magazine" in its title.
One of the prime features of this issue is the very nice map headed: "Plan of the City of Havanah" in Cuba with various portions of it labeled (see photo).
There is also a nice map titled: "Plan of the Town of Porto Bello" (Caribbean coast of Panama) with various landmarks labeled (see photo) and much text on it as well.

This issue also has a detailed account taking over a full page of a Carolina slave insurrection inspired by the Spanish promise of freedom to all black Americans who can escape to Florida, with mention of General Oglethorpe. This article includes datelines of "Savannah in Georgia, Oct. 10, 1739" and "Frederica in Georgia, Nov. 15, 1739"

Another article is titled: "The Crown of England's Title to America prior to that of Spain" which takes over a full page, and a report from Naples titled: "The King's Edict in Favor of the Jews..." (see photos).

. A report from "New York" mentions: "A body of 300 French & 700 Indians...intending to extirpate a Nation of Southern Indians called Chicasaus, Friends to the English, were in a fair pitch'd battle defeated by them with the loss of 250 men kill'd on the spot...the French have several times attacked those Indians but without success."

A complete issue of 54 pages with the full title/index page featuring an engraving of St. John's Gate. In very nice, clean condition.
