Uncommon title from the Jacobite Rebellion...
Item # 208480 THE LONDON COURANT, England, 1746 This is a folio-size, singlesheet newspaper which has various news on the front page with the back page mostly taken up with ads. The masthead is decorative as it includes detailed engravings on either side, one showing a sailing ship & lighthouse, and the other showing a postboy on horseback "trumpeting" the news.
The photo is "generic" but the issue you receive will have the same look & will be dated 1746. There is some close-trimming at the margin, and perhaps a bit irregular & worn at the margins as well. A very uncommon title from this early year, and nice to have a British newspaper from the pivotal year of the Jacobite Rebellion.
