View of the city of Chatham, England...
Item # 586898 THE LONDON MAGAZINE, England, April, 1755
* 18th century Chatham, Kent, England city scene print
* Great masthead engraving
Always one of my favorite magazines if only because of the very nice engraving at the top of the title page, showing the skyline of London at the time. Within is a nice full page plate: "The Prospect of Chatham" which is a nice view of this British town showing several ships in the River Medway (see). There is a descriptive article on the town as well. Another plate called for is present as well, but lacking the plate of Sir Walter Raleigh.
Other articles within include "Life of Sir Walter Raleigh" "Proceedings of the Political Club" "Observations on Traveling" "Johnson's English Dictionary" and much more.
Complete in 56 pages with a full title/contents page showing the skyline of London, & measuring 5 1/4 by 8 1/4 inches, very nice, clean condition.
