* Nice 18th century British magazine... 

A very nice pre-Revolutionary War magazine from the "mother country" with a wide range of varied content including news of the day, political reports, literary items, and other unusual tidbits. This was the first periodical to use the word "magazine" in its title, having begun in 1731 and lasting until 1907.

Among the articles noted in the table of contents are:

"Quakers Perverse Humour Shewn" "...Proposal  to Regulate Quadrille" "Letter from the Sugar Planters" "Brito a Jew, to Aaron Monseca"and more.

Near the back is a section headed: "Historical Chronicle" with news from England & other parts of Europe.

Complete in 56 pages with full title/index page which contains an engraving of St. John's Gate. Measures about 5 by 8 inches, very nice condition.

This is from just the sixth year of this magazine's existence and before any maps or plates were included.
