Item # 680823
January 01, 1747
THE LONDON MAGAZINE, England, January, 1747 Of curious interest is the printing of a satire "newspaper" taking 2 1/2 pages, titled "The Diabolical Courant; or, Hellish Intelligencer". It's theme is on the recent English Civil War.
Included as well is a foldout map titled: "A Map of the Northern Parts of Italy Containing Savoy, Piemont, Milan, Parma, Mantua, Modena, Tuscany, Republicks of Venice, Genoa, etc, Exhibiting the Present Seat of War". There is a related article as well.
The map folds out to 9 by 11 inches, a bit of light rubbing near the bottom, an archival mend to the reverse, generally nice condition.
Complete in 56 pages, full title/contents page featuring a very nice & detailed engraving of the skyline of London, 5 by 8 inches, very nice condition.
Formatted very much like the Gentleman's Magazine but a much more scarce title.
