Oswego in the French & Indian War... Judaica item...

Item # 645600 THE GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE, London, October, 1756  Under the heading: "American News" is a report which includes: "...concerning Oswego still continue to be contradictory...the last letters from Albany say that the French had burnt the fort & put almost the whole garrison to the sword..." and mention that Col. Webb was sent to reinforce the place & found the fort blown up & found "...about 500 dead bodies scattered in & about the place...".   Not a lengthy report yet historically important (see). 
Also of interest is an article: "Curious Jewish Instrument from the Hebrew" which takes nearly half a page & is signed: Aaron, the son of Rabby Haim (see ).
Lacking the map of Europe called for.
Complete in 48 pages with a full title/contents page featuring an engraving of St. John's Gate, 5 1/4 by 8 3/4 inches, very nice condition.

A very nice War magazine from during the French & Indian War 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.

Item from Catalog 267 (released for February, 2018)...
