Near the back is the "Historical Chronicle" with the latest news reports, including an item noting: "...principal merchants concerned in the American trade sent down counter orders to the manufacturing counties to postpone the commissions for American exportation...without full redress having been obtained for the grievances complained of from that continent." (see)
The only plate called for is present and noted above.

A very nice magazine from the "mother country" from the year of the Boston Massacre with a wide range of varied content. This was the first periodical to use the word "magazine" in its title, having begun in 1731 and lasting until 1907.
