Great and abundant content from America...



Item # 642808 THE GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE, London, November, 1768  The inside includes: "American Transactions Continued" from the previous issue which takes over 10 pages with a great wealth of content concerning the growing tensions between England & the American colonies. Perhaps this lengthy text is summed  up best with one paragraph: "...We wish & pray for the happy time when a national attention shall be given to the grievances we labour under, & the true source of them. When such a period shall come, we are persuaded that the union & harmony which has hitherto subsisted between Great Britain & the colonies & upon which the welfare of both undoubtedly depends, will be confirmed & established..." with much more (see for just portions). Further on in the issue are 1 1/2 pages headed "Plantation News" with more on events in America.
Both of the full page plates called for are present, one showing a Chinese  pheasant, and the other "A View of the Dresses at the late Masquerade given by the King of Denmark" (see).
Complete in 48 pages, 5 by 8 inches, full title/contents page featuring an engraving of St. John's Gate.

A very nice magazine from before the Revolutionary War 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.

Item from Catalog 274 (released for September, 2018)...
