One of the articles is titled: "A Dissertation Whether the Hebrews borrow'd any Customs from the Heathens? And Whether Temples were before the Tabernacle?" which takes most of a column.

Several pages contain articles related to Reverend George Whitefield, including: "Mr. Whitefield charg'd with Falsities", "The Number of Mr. Whitefield's Hearers Calculated", and "Mr. Whitefield Vindicated.", one of which includes a reference to Methodism and John Wesley.

There is a full page taken up with a map and text concerning Spain, showing most of the country including Gibraltar, as well as a portion of northern Africa, the Brittany portion of France, the western portion of England, and the southern part of Ireland (see photos). There is a small inked library stamp at the bottom corner of this page.

Among the other articles noted in the table of contents are: "Continuation of the Vision of the unmarrying Priest" "Case of a Woman Unhappily Wedded" and more. Near the back is a section headed: "Historical Chronicle" with news from England & other parts of Europe.

Complete in 54 pgs. with full title/index page which contains an engraving of St. John's Gate. Measures about 5 3/4 by 8 3/4 inches, very nice condition.

A very nice pre-Revolutionary War magazine from the "mother country" with a wide range of varied content including news of the day, political reports, literary items, and other unusual tidbits. This was the first periodical to use the word "magazine" in its title, having begun in 1731 and lasting until 1907.
