Newsbook from 1659...
Item # 587354
March 1, 1659
MERCURIUS PUBLICUS, London, England, March 1, 1659 Here is an uncommon title in newsbook format (the forerunner of newspapers) "Comprising the sum of Forraign Intelligence; with The Affairs now in agitation in England, Scotland, and Ireland. For Information of the People" as printed in the masthead (see photos).
Although we have offered several newsbooks in recent years, I believe this is one of the less common titles we have offered. As might be imagined there is a great wealth of reports concerning affairs in England, including military items (see for portions).
Measures 6 1/4 by 8 inches, 16 pages, various foxing & light damp staining throughout but no loss of readability, otherwise with wide margins and in nice condition.
