A beautiful & intricately engraved masthead...
Item # 630164
August 12, 1729
THE NORWICH GAZETTE, England, Aug. 12, 1727
* Rare 18th century title
* Great masthead engraving
See the photo for the tremendous detail in the masthead of this early newspaper showing the skyline of Norwich. Individual buildings and even the windows can be seen in this woodblock engraving. There are insets in the upper corners as well, one showing the patron Saint George slaying a dragon. Plus the first letter of the text is very ornately engraved.
As would be expected filled with various reports from Europe, by mostly from England.
Four pages, 8 1/2 by 10 1/4 inches, darkly inked front page red tax stamp, plus the entire issue is very nicely inked. In great condition. An extremely displayable newspaper.
