December 06, 1675
THE LONDON GAZETTE, England, Dec. 6, 1675 Almost the entire front page is taken up with: "A Proclamation for Prohibiting the Importation of Commodities of Europe into any of His Majesties Plantations in Africa, Asia, or America, which were not Laden in England; and for Putting all Other Laws Relating to the Trade of the Plantations in Effectual Execution".
Rare to find such lengthy content relating to America in a 1675 newspaper.
Additionally, the back page has a report datelined from Jamaica and another report concerning the loss of ships near Barbados due to a violent hurricane.
Single sheet, 6 3/4 by 11 inches, great condition.
