Very rare 17th century magazine...
Item # 647381 THE GENTLEMAN'S JOURNAL OR THE MONTHLY MISCELLANY, London, July, 1693 If 18th century magazines are scarce, titles from the 17th century are exceedingly rare. Here is one such title, subtitled: "In a Letter to A Gentleman in the Country Consisting of News, History, Philosophy, Poetry, Musick, Translations, etc." Contains a very nice full title page (see), and pg. 2 is mostly taken up with the table of contents. The articles are mostly literary and topical, with the back 8 pages are taken up with three pieces of music.
Complete in 36 pages, 5 3/4 by 7 3/4 inches, very nice condition. A rare item with such an early date.
