Item # 654916
December 01, 1785
THE GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE, London, December, 1785 Contains a wide range of articles with one of the more interesting being: "Dr. Moseley's Elucidation of the Virtues of Coffee" taking nearly 3 pages. Near the back is news headed: "America" taking almost an entire page and reports on an Indian treaty & other events from the United States & Canada (see).
Contains both of the plates called for, the more interesting being a full page showing: "The Baschkirian Bear Trap", and the other being a foldout plate with various images (see).
Complete in 88 pages, 5 by 8 1/4 inches, full title/contents page featuring an engraving of St. John's Gate, very nice, clean condition.
A very nice magazine from the "mother country" not long after the end of the Revolutionary War. This was the first periodical to use the word "magazine" in its title, having begun in 1731 and lasting until 1907.
