Item # 629188
November 01, 1791
THE GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE, England, November, 1791 Near the back is a: "Proclamation of the Brothers of the King of France - To dispel the Suspicions which have Arisen of their Intention to Dethrone their Brother" (see). There is also a short bit of "American Intelligence" reporting a terrible fire in New York City (see).
Lacking both of the plates called for.
Complete in 96 pages, full title/contents page with an engraving of St. John's Gate, 5 by 8 inches. Repair at the spine margin of the front leaf has some loss and affects some words in the title page (see). Nice condition.
This was the first periodical to use the word "magazine" in its title, having begun in 1731 and lasting until 1907.
