Very rare 17th century magazine...
Item # 655525 THE GENTLEMAN'S JOURNAL OR THE MONTHLY MISCELLANY, London, August, 1693 If 18th century magazines are scarce, titles from the 17th century are even more rare.
Here is one, subtitled: "In a Letter to A Gentleman in the Country Consisting of News, History, Philosophy, Poetry, Musick, Translations, etc." Contains a very nice full title page, and pg. 2 is mostly taken up with the table of contents. The articles are mostly literary and topical, with the back 8 pages are taken up with three pieces of music.
Complete in 36 pages, 5 3/4 by 7 3/4 inches, very nice condition. A rare item with such an early date.
