Item # 633439
February 1, 1753
THE SCOURGE, London, February 1, 1753 A very curious and uncommon newspaper from England done in editorial format, popular with other titles at that time as well. It was published "By Oxymel Busby, Esq." as noted in the masthead. The front page begins with a sentiment which could apply to today: "One of the chief causes of our unhappiness is an undue regard to parental authority.." with more.
Single column format with 6 pages, 7 1/4 by 11 1/4 inches, great condition.
