July 27, 1799
THE NORFOLK CHRONICLE OR NORWICH GAZETTE, England, July 27, 1799
* Rare 18th Century title
The masthead features a nice engraving. Various news from throughout England plus the back page has: "Total Defeat Of Buonaparte" which notes in part: "...from Chezar Ghazi Achmed Pacha...General Buonaparte had entirely ceased since the beginning of May to fire upon the fortress..." with much more concerning his failed siege at Acre (present-day Israel) after which he abandoned his efforts in Egypt to return to France. This & related reports take over a full column.
Four pages, red tax stamp in the upper right, some fold foxing, generally good.
