Very early on the sport of tennis...



Item # 614210

February 24, 1789

THE MORNING POST & DAILY ADVERTISER, London, Feb. 24, 1789  Page 2 has a brief yet very early report on tennis: "Tennis now becomes every day more & more the fashion, the Dedans, being a subscription seat at two guineas per annum, excludes the lower tribe of sharpers." (see)
Four pages, very nice condition.
