Great display issue...
Item # 648046
February 6, 1720
THE WEEKLY JOURNAL OR SATURDAY'S POST, London, February 6, 1720
* Great masthead engraving
* Early 18th century original
This title has one of the more beautiful & intricately engraved mastheads to be seen, and this issue has a particularly nicely-inked impression, making it an ideal issue for display. Various news items from Europe with most of pg. 3 taken up with news tidbits from London.
Present are all 6 pages, as more typically the back leaf is lacking as it was often loose from pages 1-4 (there was no tax on 4 pg. newspapers at the time). Measures 8 1/2 by 14 inches, nice condition.
