Inhabitants of New Zealand... Plate of Algernon Sidney...
Item # 659890
July 01, 1773
THE LONDON MAGAZINE, England, July, 1773 Near the back is a nearly full column report headed: "America - New York". Also an article: "Interesting Anecdotes of the Life of Algernon Sydney, the English Patriot" as well as a full page plate of him. Sidney was an English politician who was accused of platting against the life of Charles II, for which he would be executed.
Over a full page is taken up with: "Some Account of the Inhabitants of New Zealand" which is very descriptive. The related plate called for is lacking.
An interesting feature is the full title/contents page which has a very intricately engraved view of the skyline of London at the time, making this very decorative.
The mentioned plate of Algernon Sidney is the only plate present.
Complete in 52 pages, 5 1/4 by 8 1/4 inches, excellent condition.
