Nice plate of Windsor Palace...
Item # 616992 THE GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE, London, October, 1765 A nice issue of this very famous & successful British magazine from this significant year of the Stamp Act, and some ten years before the outbreak of the Revolutionary War. One of the features of this issue is the very nice full page plate of: "A View of the Royal Palace at Windsor", so closely connected to the Royal Family today. It is accompanied by a very descriptive article: "Some Account of Windsor Castle".
Also in this issue are: "Account of a Mummy lately Inspected" which takes 3 pages; "Remedy for the Sting of a Wasp in the Throat" "On the Healthiness of Hospitals" & much more.
Near the back is the "Historical Chronicle" with the latest news reports of the day. Both full page plates called for are present and in nice condition.
Complete in 48 pages, 5 by 8 1/4 inches, full title/contents page with an engraving of St. John's Gate, small area of very faint dampstaining at the top area of the issue, otherwise in very nice condition.
