THE VISIONS OF SIR HEISTER RYLEY: WITH OTHER ENTERTAINMENTS, London, September 11, 1710
* Early 18th century
* Rare publication
Sir Heister Ryley, the fictitious editor of the Visions of Sir Heister Ryley, is a man interested in all fields of learning, a "stickler in the business of truth" and absolutely adverse to siding with any political party. His little newspaper was a 4 page serial. It contained essays, letters and miscellaneous material which was datelined: "From my House in St. James Square". The newspaper lasted through only eighty issues, being quite rare as such. The issue measures about 5 1/4 by 7 inches, has scattered foxing, very nice condition.
