The Great Awakening... Early colonial imprint...
Item # 577412
April 2, 1743
THE CHRISTIAN HISTORY, Boston, Massachusetts, April 2, 1743
* Rare colonial periodical
This was the very first successful magazine in America, preceded by just a few magazines which lasted but a couple of issues--one of which was by Ben Franklin. Even this title lasted but a few short years.
As the subtitle reads: "Containing Accounts of the Propagation & Revival of Religion in Great Britain & America", this 8 page magazine is almost entirely taken up with religious content from the "Great Awakening" period in American history.
Great condition, measures 4 3/4 by 8 inches. The imprint appears at the bottom of the back page (see). A rare opportunity for an American periodical from such an early year.
