Item # 676988

June 11, 1692

ATHENIAN MERCURY, London, June 11, 1692

* 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. Some light foxing, otherwise nice.
