A "Diabolical Courant" newspaper within... Map of Northern Italy...



Item # 680824

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.
Otherwise various European reports and news of the day.
Complete in 56 pages, full title/contents page featuring a very nice & detailed engraving of the skyline of London, 5 by 8 inches, a damp stain throughout, otherwise good.

Formatted very much like the Gentleman's Magazine but a much more scarce title.
