Rare 17th century title from England... Surrender of Namur...
Item # 651792 THE PRESENT STATE OF EUROPE OR THE HISTORICAL & POLITICAL MONTHLY MERCURY, London, England, January, 1694 This is an uncommon periodical published during the reign of King William III, formatted something like a pamphlet but definitely a periodical, with the more extended title reading: "... Giving an Account of all the Publick and Private Occurrences, Civil, Ecclesiastical, and Military, that are most considerable in every Court: The Interest of Princes, their Pretensions, and Intrigues, etc."(see).
Much of this issue is concerned with the political & military affairs of Europe & is organized into news by country or region with commentary on the events.
"A nice feature of this periodical is the full title page which includes the date. The back leaf is a "Supplement" and page 2 has some "Advertisements". Measures 6 1/4 by 7 1/2 inches, 36 pages, some worm holes at the spine margin, very nice condition.
