Item # 629227

THE GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE, England, December, 1793 Among the many articles is: "Means for the Recovery of Persons Apparently Drowned" which takes a full page. Near the back are various news reports including items headed: "American Intelligence" which takes over half a page. Most of this content is political related, plus there is a report of the abatement of the Yellow Fever in Philadelphia (see).
Included are both plates called for, one of which is a very nice foldout.
Complete in 96 pages, full title/contents page with an engraving of St. John's Gate, 5 by 8 inches, nice condition.
This was the first periodical to use the word "magazine" in its title, having begun in 1731 and lasting until 1907.
