He can cure almost anything...
Item # 582571
March 30, 1734
THE COUNTRY JOURNAL, OR THE CRAFTSMAN, London, March 30, 1734 A nice "typical" newspaper from England from the time when George Washington was just two years old. Various news and many ads, a few of which have small illustrations. Perhaps the most intriguing advertisement is the back page ad for "Richard Rock, Practitioner in Physick and Surgery" which has a very nice print of him and also notes the various diseases for which he: "...has a safe and speedy method of curing..." (see).
Complete in 4 pages & measuring about 10 1/2 by 14 1/2 inches and in nice condition. The photo below is "generic" but the issue you receive will have a similar look and will be dated 1733 or 1734.
