Still with the original blue wrappers...
Item # 684748 THE LONDON MAGAZINE, England, October, 1769 Rarely do we find such 18th century magazines in their original state--never bound, never trimmed, and with their original blue outer wrappers. Here is one.
Inside the front wrapper is the title/contents have most are familiar with, featuring a very detailed engraving of the London skyline.
Near the back in the "Monthly Chronologer" with the latest news reports of the day, both domestic and foreign.
Complete in 54 pages, still containing the original 3 full page engravings called for (unusual), wide untrimmed margins, the front wrapper is a bit close-trimmed at the top affecting the top border (but not the coat-of-arms engraving), original string binding from 1769. Nice condition.
