THE LONDON MAGAZINE, England, September, 1771
* Pre-Revolutionary War prediction ?
Formatted very much like the Gentleman's Magazine however much more scarce. The full titlepg. features a great & very detailed engraving of the skyline of London. Among the articles are: "An Authentick Account of General Paoli's Tour to Scotland, Autumn, 1771" "An Essay on National Virtue" and so much more. Near the back is "The Monthly Chronologer" with news reports including items headed: "America" which has reports from Williamsburg, Boston and New York, the latter including: "...kind of internal war is carried on within the bounds of this province which, if not speedily checked, will have serious consequences to us & prove as dangerous as the Regulators of North Carolina..." (see). In interesting & prophetic statement.
Complete in 48 pages, 5 by 8 inches, disbound, bit close-trimmed at the right side of the titlepg. slightly affected the skyline engraving (see) & a small chip from the right margin, otherwise very nice.
