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.
