January 22, 1707

THE LONDON GAZETTE, England, Jan. 22, 1707 

* Anne, Queen of Great Britain and Ireland

Almost the entire front page is taken up with: "By the  Queen, A PROCLAMATION For Encouraging Seamen and Landmen to Enter themselves on Board Her Majesties Ships of War". A fine "recruiting" document particularly in light of the on-going War of Spanish Succession.
Single sheet, 7 by 11 1/2 inches, a stain near the bottom causes no loss of readability, good condition.
