Near the back is the "Historical Chronicle" which has various news reports from throughout Europe. Included is a report headed: "Progress of the Siege of Bergen-op-Zoom" which takes over a full page (see for beginning).
Lacking the map called for.
Complete in 56 pages, measures 5 by 8 1/4 inches, full title/contents page featuring an engraving of St. John's Gate, very nice condition.

A very nice pre-Revolutionary War magazine from the "mother country" 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.
