Item # 644796
February 12, 1791
THE WORLD, London, Feb. 12, 1791 Page 3 contains a report reading: "It is with pleasure we can announce to the public the imprisonment in this city of the thieves who lately stole Madam du Barre's jewels. They were detected by offering to sale a small parcel of them, value about 7,000l to a Mr. Simon, a Jew, for 1,500l which caused in him a suspicion of their being obtained by some dishonest means..." with a bit more (see). Mentions of Jews in such reports are relatively uncommon. You get the complete 4 page issue, folio size, which is in nice condition.
