A rare title which rarely comes into hands of collectors...
Item # 670285
April 24, 1733
THE HYP-DOCTOR, London, April 24, 1733
* Very rare 18th century publication
The title is an archaic phrase for a "hodgepodge of nonsense". This curious paper published from 1730-1741, a pro-Walpole (first Prime Minister of Great Britain) newspaper created to oppose another British title "The Craftsman".
The focus is noted in the masthead: "No Bugbears, or the Merits of the Cause, a Cool Examination of the Bonfires and Petitions of London, Nottingham, and Coventry."
A single sheet issue with wide, untrimmed margins, 9 by 14 1/4 inches, red tax stamp on the front page, very nice condition.
