News of the day from 1694...
Item # 655450 THE PRESENT STATE OF EUROPE OR THE HISTORICAL & POLITICAL MONTHLY MERCURY, London, England, February, 1694 This is a very 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.".
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. Near the back is "Advice From England" followed by: "Reflections Upon the advice from England."
A nice feature of this periodical is the full title page which includes the date. Advertisements are inside the front leaf. Measures 6 1/4 by 7 1/2 inches, 36 pages, a few tiny wormholes at the spine margin not touching text, nice condition
