A broadside-like chart consumes the front page...



Item # 670879

April 22, 1710

THE LONDON GAZETTE, England, April 22, 1710  A rather unusual issue, as most of the front page is taken up with an uncommonly large--wider and longer than normal--chart headed: "A Table of  the Assize of Bread, in Pounds, Ounces, and Drams, Averdupois Weight" with 14 columns.
This chart extends beyond the normal margins of this newspaper. The back page has uncommonly wide margins so as to accommodate the chart on the front page.
A very nice issue for display.
Single sheet, 8 by 12 1/4 inches, nice condition.

Item from Catalog 298 (released for September, 2020)...
