Quite rare & early newspaper...
Item # 649947
September 30, 1736
THE OLD WHIG, OR THE CONSISTENT PROTESTANT, London, September 30, 1736 This is a very rare title, and early as well for a folio-size newspaper (measures 9 1/2 by 14 1/4 in.).
This title only published for 4 years. A few essays plus news of the day including an article on the arts within the Salon of Herculus. Also is the reporting of the Majesty's Proclamation for the persons concerned in the barbarous murder of Capt. John Porteous (see). Also an early report of a walking match.
Complete in four pages, wide, never-trimmed margins, nice condition. A rare opportunity to add a scarce title to your 18th century collection.
