Map of Germany... The Mississippi River...
Item # 621114 THE GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE, London, January, 1761
* Nice foldout map of Germany and vicinity
* Concerning the French & Indian War
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.
An article: "Thoughts on the Present Posture of Affairs" includes some discussion concerning America, and includes: "...Hence it is evident that as North America was the bone of contention, Great Britain must not be induced to part with any of her conquests on that continent; because that would be a means to renew the war...". Also an article: "Letter of the Quakers on Pacific Measures".
Also: "On the Importance of the rich Country on the Banks of the River Mississippi which is yet in the Possession of the French" (see for portions).
Included is a nice foldout map titled: "An Accurate Map of all His Majesty's Dominions IN GERMANY with the Adjacent Countries..." which measures 12 by 14 1/4 inches.
Near the back is the: "Historical Chronicle" which has various news reports from England and other parts of Europe.
Complete in 48 pages, 5 1/4 by 8 1/2 inches, nice condition.
