(14) ATHENIAN MERCURY, London, England,
(14 issues @ $35 per issue - written up for an order)

This was a fine gentleman's newspaper which was very popular in the coffeehouses of early England. Interesting reading on a wide range of topics. A very early English periodical now over 320 years old.
These newspapers were done in question/answer format. These newspapers were published at a time when there weren't any newspapers in all of the American colonies. Single sheet newspapers printed on both sides (typical for the period), measuring about 7 1/2 by 12 1/4 inches. One issue has some light damp staining, generally in very nice condition.
