A Great Plague report from 1666...

Item # 679599

April 26, 1666

THE LONDON GAZETTE, England, April 26, 1666  A notable issue being from the year when the Great Plague was raging, and also from the year of the Great London Fire.
The issue is filled with various reports from throughout Europe, much of it military reporting. The bottom of the back page has a death report which ties it specifically to this significant year: "The Account of this Weeks Bill runs thus. The Total 215. Of the Plague 24. Decreased of the Plague 16."
Complete as a single sheet issue, 7 by 11 1/4 inches, an indent at the blank margin, very nice condition.
