Also included is the other plate called for, a two-page foldout: "Plan of the Scaffolding in Westminster Hall".
Complete in 48 pages, full title/contents page with an engraving of St. John's Gate, 5 by 8 inches with, very nice condition.
A very nice pre-Revolutionary War magazine from the "mother country" with a wide range of varied content. This was the first periodical to use the word "magazine" in its title, having begun in 1731 and lasting until 1907.
