Treatment in the West Indies... Early Masonic item...

Item # 616630
THE GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE, London, August, 1738  One of the articles within begins: "I have orders...the British subjects complain in the strongest manner of the oblique ways & unjust means which the Spanish officers in the West Indies make use of for condemning & confiscating their ships..." with more, taking almost an entire pg. (see photos for portions).
Among the articles noted in the table of contents are: "Dr. Mortimer's Account of a Remedy for the Bite of a Viper" "A Story of the King of Persia" "Generous Effects of Old Love" and more. One page has an interesting engraving of the moon (see).
Near the back is the: "Historical Chronicle" with news from England & other parts of Europe. One of the articles concerns the "Free and Accepted Masons" and the contributions of various members towards the construction of a building (see). This is an early Masonic item.
Contains 52 pages. Is lacking the full title/index page, Measures about 5 by 7 3/4 inches, very nice condition. There were no plates or maps called for in issues this early.
