May 25, 1713
THE EXAMINER, London, May 25, 1713 This editorial-format newspaper was edited by the famed Jonathan Swift at this time (of Gulliver's Travels fame), and was created by the Tories to counter the press of the Whig government.
Single sheet, 8 by 13 inches, text is a bit lopsided, otherwise nice.
