More Protestant Germans for Georgia...

Item # 676461 THE GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE, London, December, 1736  Included is an interesting article continue from a previous issue: "Account of the Deluge", meaning the Biblical Flood.
Near the back is a short bit noting: "The trustees for the colony of Georgia gave instructions to Mr. Von Reck to fetch more Protestants from Germany to be provided for in Georgia; those already there proving a very religious, diligent, & governable people."
Lacking the plate which is called for.
Complete in 56 pages, full title/contents page featuring an engraving of St. John's Gate, 5 by 8 inches, very nice condition.

A very nice pre-Revolutionary War magazine from the "mother country" with a wide range of varied content. This was the first periodical to use the word "magazine" in its title, having begun in 1731 and lasting until 1907.
