Set of five different mastheads for the same title...
Item # 639830
June 2, 1715
THE POST BOY, London Here is an interesting set of five different issues dating from 1706, 1715, 1719, 1729 and 1734.
* Rare & early 18th century issues (5)
* Nice masthead engravings (different)
As was often the case newspapers which existed over 30 years the masthead would often change, sometimes subtly. Here is a set with each masthead being slightly different, the earliest 2 with two engravings each, all differently slightly, and the last without any masthead engravings.
Each issue is complete as a single sheet newspaper in nice condition. A great price for 5 different issues from the early 1700's.
