THE FLYING-POST: OR, THE POSTS-MASTER, London, June 9, 1715
* Very rare title
In 1695 the Licensing Act of England was allowed to lapse, which caused several newspapers to begin publication, this title being one of them. But this is certainly one of the more rare such titles as we have only offered 4 or 5 in the past 40 years.
Filled with various reports from Europe, plus the back page has some content concerning the Jacobite Rebellion rising of 1715 (see), several advertisements as well.
Single sheet, 8 1/4 by 14 inches, partial tax stamp in an upper margins, great condition.
