Indian troubles in South Carolina... A new coffee discovered...
Item # 659751
June 1, 1765
THE LONDON MAGAZINE, England, June, 1765 Perhaps the most interesting feature is the full title/contents page which has a very intricately engraved view of the skyline of London at the time, making this very decorative.
Near the back is a report from Newport, Rhode Island, concerning whaling, and another item from Maryland on the discovery of: "...a new sort of coffee, equally good, much wholesomer, and vastly cheaper than the foreign coffee; it is made of common rye..." with more.
There is also a letter from Charleston, South Carolina, concerning the situation with the Indians in the vicinity, as shown in the photos.
The map called for on the title page is lacking.
Complete in 56 pages, 5 by 8 inches, excellent condition.
