Interesting Judaica content...
Item # 585669 THE GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE, London, May, 1813
* Judaica interest
An inside page has an article which begins: "The following List of Jews is supposed to preserve the names of the first settlers here of that nation...Though the re-admission of the Jews was a matter largely discussed in the time of the Protector, their return did not take place until after the Restoration. In 1663 a Minister of the Portuguese Synagogue is said to have searched the registers & not to have discovered more than twelve Jews resident in London." and what follows is: "The List of the Jewes" by name (see photos), all taking over half a page.
This issue contains approximately 100 pages (missing plates called for), full title/contents page, 5 by 8 inches, very nice condition.
