THE VISIONS OF SIR HEISTER RYLEY: WITH OTHER ENTERTAINMENTS, London, Sept. 6, 1710
* Early 18th century
* Rare title
Sir Heister Ryley, the fictitious editor of the Visions of Sir Heister Ryley, is a man interested in all fields of learning, a "stickler in the business of truth" and absolutely adverse to siding with any political party. His little newspaper was a 4 page serial. It contained essays, letters and miscellaneous material which was datelined: "...at a Gentleman's House in Great Marlborough Street". The newspaper lasted through only eighty issues, being quite rare as such.
Four pages, 5 1/4 by 7 inches, very nice condition.
