Gentleman's newspaper from 17th century England...

Item # 675892

January 23, 1691

ATHENIAN MERCURY, London, England, Jan. 23, 1691

* Rare 17th century title

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 325 years old.
This newspaper was done in question/answer format. This newspaper was published at a time when there weren't any newspapers in all of the American colonies. A single sheet newspaper printed on both sides (typical for the period), measuring 7 1/2 by 12 1/4 inches. Very nice condition.
