September 21, 1786

THE MORNING CHRONICLE & LONDON ADVERTISER, England, Sept. 21, 1786  Page 2 has an interesting--and early--account of a balloon ascension in Salisbury, but was cut short to dis dismay of the 10,000 who were witnesses, noting: "...Thus ended an exhibition...who retired much disappointed and not a little incensed." (see)
Four pages, red tax stamp on the front page, untrimmed margins, great condition.
