Jamaica... Early electricity



Item # 606934 THE GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE, London, April, 1762

* Jamaica
* early electricty

This magazine is missing the plates of "A Map Of the Island of Jamaica" and "Plan of the City and Harbour of the Havanna", Cuba, but there is a report near the back which relates to it, beginning: "Porto Rico is a large Spanish island, well fortified; and Hispaniola belonging to both France & Spain is much larger & stronger...by taking the Havannah & St. Jago, we shall take the whole island of Cuba which is 500 miles long...And as our taking Cuba and Florida, will bring Spain to reasonable terms, the taking Mississippi & the Caribee Islands, which we have already conquered, may bring France to reasonable terms also..." with more.
There is also an interesting report concerning the trial of seven men for piracy.
Other articles of interest in this magazine include:

*  "A Letter to a Friend on Suicide and Madness"
*  the Articles of Capitulation for the surrender of the island of St. Lucia, which takes nearly 2 1/2 pgs.
*  "Defence of the British East India Company"
*  "Papers Relative to the Rupture with Spain"
*  "City of London's Address on Taking Martinico"
* "Principles of Electricity..." which is over 2 pages


Complete in 96 pages, measures 5 by 8 inches with full title/index page which features an engraving of St. John's Gate. Nice condition.

A very nice pre-Revolutionary War magazine from the "mother country" with a wide range of varied content including news of the day, political reports, literary items, and other unusual tidbits. This was the first periodical to use the word "magazine" in its title, having begun in 1731 and lasting until 1907.
