Curious double-masthead newspaper...
Item # 596117
March 5, 1730
THE DAILY ADVERTISER, London, March 5, 1730 A very interesting single sheet newspaper of folio size, curious in that it has a double masthead: one at the top of the front page and also one at the top of the back page, with the same date. Formatted as if the front side with the news reports was separate from the back page which has nothing but advertisements and the imprint at the bottom.
Just below the masthead on the front page is a banner-format (from edge to edge) note from the publisher on his intents for this new newspaper, which he founded just a few weeks prior to this issue.
Measures 9 1/2 by 16 inches, generally in nice condition.
