Item # 683371

August 29, 1717

THE EVENING POST, London, Aug. 29, 1717  This was the newspaper upon which the word "evening" first appeared in any newspaper title when it began in 1706. A very handsome issue which has a very interesting & unusual format. Much news from Europe on pages 1 and 2, with half of page 3 being blank, with a nice red tax stamp, and over half of the back page blank.
Four pages, never bound nor trimmed with wide margins, 8 1/2 by 10 3/4 inches, great condition.
