First issue of the rare "Boston Magazine"...



Item # 645441

October 1, 1783

THE BOSTON MAGAZINE, Massachusetts, October, 1783  A quite rare title and one of the first we've offered in some years, plus this is the volume 1, number 1 issue. Much of the content is literary. Near the back is the "Historical Chronicle" with the latest news reports of the day, mostly taken up with an address of the Mass. governor to his Assembly, signed in type: John Hancock.
All 40 pages are present but there is no outer wrapper. An inside leaf has a piece from an upper corner affecting some text, plus the issue has various wear at the margins, more so near the front of the issue (see). Measures 5 by 8 inches.
