The first successful magazine in the country...

Item # 645581

March 10, 1744

THE CHRISTIAN HISTORY, Boston, Massachusetts, March 10, 1743,4  (year noted as such as it was 1743 or 1744 depending on which calendar was used).

* Very rare 18th century magazine
* 1st successful magazine in America

This was the very first successful magazine in America, preceded by just a few magazines which lasted but a couple of issues--one of which was by Ben Franklin. Even this title lasted but a few short years.
As the subtitle reads: "Containing Accounts of the Propagation & Revival of Religion in Great Britain & America", this magazine is almost entirely taken up with religious content from the "Great Awakening" period in American history. Scattered foxing, nice condition, 8 pages, 4 3/4 by 8 inches a name penned in the spine margin. A rare opportunity for an American periodical from such an early year.
Included is a photocopy of the volume's title page which contains the Boston imprint.
