Nice engraving in the masthead...

Item # 657507

May 24, 1753

THE WORLD, London, England, May 24, 1753  This is an interesting six page newspaper which only lasted for four years, devoted to satirizing the vices and follies of the fashionable world rather than reporting the news of the day. 
Nice woodcut in the masthead of a man writing in a book while looking at a globe. Measures 7 by 11 inches, 6 pages, and in nice condition.
