Battle of Quebec in the French & Indian War... With a map of Quebec...



Item # 667160 THE GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE, London, October, 1759  This issue contains a terrific & very detailed account of the Battle of Quebec, headed: "Operations of the Army Before Quebec" and "Authentic Accounts of the Proceedings Before Quebec", taking seven pages of text and includes the "Articles of Capitulation Agreed on Between Gen. Townshend & M. DeRamzay, commander of Quebec".
But the prime item is the very nice & rather rare full page plate titled: "A Map of the Island of Orleans with the Environs of Quebec" which shows much detail. The map measures 5 by 8 inches and is in great condition. Typically such maps have been removed.
This issue also includes: "Instructions for Making Wine in America", which is an extremely early report on wine making in the colonies.
Complete in 56 pages, 5 by 8 inches, full title/contents page with an engraving of St. John's Gate, excellent condition.

A very nice magazine from the French & Indian War 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.

Item from Catalog 305 (released for April, 2021)...
