Death of Queen Anne...



Item # 613391

August 21, 1714

THE POST BOY, London, August 21, 1714 The front page has an article from London "We have an Account from Glascow, That upon the News of Her Majesty's Death, the Mobb rose up in tumultuary Manner, and broke open the Episcopal Meeting-House, breaking down all the Pews, and carry'd the Pulpit and Common-Prayer-Book in Triumph thro' the Town, and at length burnt them... This is the only Riot that has been committed in North Britain since the Queen's Death; His Majesty being proclaimed in all Places without any Tumult...". See photos for full details.
A very displayable issue as the masthead features two wood engravings, on showing a man, or "post boy", on horseback trumpeting the news.
This is a single-sheet issue in very nice condition with a partial red tax stamp on the back page.
