* Among the earliest of English language newspapers to be had
A very early issue of this still-publishing newspaper, having begun in 1665.
The back page has a report from "London" mentioning the arrival of two ships "...which spoke of some loss received by the English in an attempt upon St. Christophers...that there has since been a fight between... the English, and...the French ships, wherein the English having the advantage chaced them to the Isle of Martinico...".
Complete as a single sheet newspaper, 7 by 11 inches, very nice condition.
