View of the Northern Coast of Russia...

Item # 643201

* Illustration of the Northern Coast of Russia

Perhaps the best feature in this issue is the article: "...Discoveries of the Russians on the N.E. Coast of Asia", with accompanying view shown at the top of an included plate/print (see images).

Among the other interesting items are: "A Description of the Province of Quito, & other Parts of Peru", "...A Horizontal Windmill...", "The Art of Ropemaking" with two illustrations, plus more. Near the back is the "Historical Chronicle" which has the latest news events of the day.

Complete in 48 pages, 5 by 8 in., full title/contents page with an engraving of St. John's Gate. Nice condition. Only one of the plates called for is present, that being of various items including a map of the north coast of Siberia.

A very nice pre-Revolutionary War magazine from the "mother country" with a wide range of varied content. This was the first periodical to use the word "magazine" in its title, having begun in 1731 and lasting until 1907.
