Complete in 52 pages but lacking the full title/contents page, 5 1/4 by 8 1/4 inches, 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.
