The Jacobite Rebellion... Battle of Culloden with a print of the hero....



Item # 640452
THE GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE, London, May, 1746  Included is a nice prelude to  better content yet to come in this issue, although significant as well, being a detailed report headed: "Carlisle Attack'd by the Rebels", one of the more noteworthy battles in the Jacobite Rebellion, and very near its end. This article takes over 2 pages and is "To be continued".
Adjacent to this is a very significant & nice foldout map titled: "A Map of the Countries Adjacent to CARLISLE Shewing the Route of the REBELS with their principal Fords over  y River Eden." which also includes a nice inset of: "The West Prospect of Carlisle Castle". This map folds out to measure 8 1/2 by 11 inches & is in excellent condition (see). Also in the issue is "On Humility, Occasion'd by a Remarkable express of the Duke of Cumberland's."
Certainly the most significant item is the historic account of the Battle of Culloden, which signaled the end of Bonnie Prince Charlie's (the Young Pretender) hope of regaining the crown of England. It is headed: "An Accurate Account of the Battle, with Remarks on the Dispositions of the Respective Armies" and above this is printed: "Account of the Battle of Culloden". This article takes two pages, and facing it is a great and unusual full page graphic diagram headed: "Plan of the Battle near Culloden House, April 16, 1746". Of great significance also is the full page plate of: "William Duke of Cumberland", the hero in the victory at Culloden. More typically this plate is lacking.
These items are followed by another article headed: "Of the Victory at Culloden" which takes over a full page, and this is followed by: "The Rebellion Suppressed and its Consequences". Further on is: "Of Punishing the Rebels", "On Civilizing the Highlanders" and "Progress of the King's Forces in Scotland".
Two pages are taken up with a list of: "Ships taken by the English" and "Ships Taken by the French & Spaniards" with many mentions of ships bound to or from America.
Complete in 52 pages, full title/contents page featuring an engraving of St. John's Gate, 5 3/4 by 8 3/4 inches with wide untrimmed margins, great condition. 

A very nice pre-Revolutionary War magazine from the "mother country" with a wide range of varied content. This was the first periodical to use the word "magazine" in its title, having begun in 1731 and lasting until 1907.
