A Northwest Passage through North America...



Item # 655503
SUPPLEMENT TO THE GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE, London, England, 1744

* A Northwest Passage through North America

A very nice pre-Revolutionary War magazine from the "mother country". This was the first periodical to use the word "magazine" in its title, having begun in 1731 and lasting until 1907. This "Supplement" issue was done at the end of the year.

Over 31 pages at the beginning of the issue are taken up with reports on events in Parliament under the guise of: "Proceedings & Debates in the Senate of Lilliput" as direct reporting on Parliamentary events was prohibited. this is most of the issue.

There is also a great article: "On an Attempt to Discover the North West Passage" to the South Seas, through North America. This item takes three-quarters of a page (see photos).

Complete in 34 pgs.  Measures about 5 by 8 inches, very nice condition. The Supplement issues does not have a full title/index page. There are no plates or maps called for in this issue.

Category: The 1600's and 1700's
