Item # 650328 THE GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE, London, February, 1784 
Among the articles are: "Ancient Customs Elucidated--The Feast of Yule" "History of the Race of Gypsies Further Illustrated" which takes nearly 3 pages; "An Account of the Experiments Made by the Aerostatic Machine of M.M. Montgolfier" the famous balloonist (see); and more.
There is over half a page on the Quakers' address to Congress on their concern for the slave trade (see), and also half a column on: "American Intelligence" which includes a letter noting: "...Our government in this part of the world is not yet well established, and I am really afraid that this country will experience some dreadful political convulsions before this desirable establishment takes place..." (see).
Both plates called for are present, one of which is a foldout.
Complete in 80 pages, 5 1/4 by 8 1/4 inches, with a full title/contents page featuring an engraving of St. John's Gate, very lite scattered foxing, otherwise in nice condition.
This periodical was the first ever to use the word "magazine" in its title.
