With a full page plate, rarely found in this title...



Item # 685688

February 24, 1798

THE WEEKLY MAGAZINE, Philadelphia, Feb. 24, 1798  An uncommon title which lasted only from Feb., 1798 thru June, 1799, during which time it was suspended for 6 months due to the death of the editor.
Contents include a wide range of eclectic articles with one surprise being the presence of a full page plate which relates to the front page article: "Essays Towards the Formation of a Useful Treatise...on the Amusing Accomplishments of Drawing, Shading, and Painting, designed for the Instruction of Youth". This article carries over to page 2.
The back two pages are taken up with "Intelligence", mostly consumed with a: "...Melancholy Accident Took Place upon Connecticut River...".
No imprint but Mott's 'History of American Magazines' verifies it was published in Phila.
Complete in 32 pages, 5 by 8 1/4 inches, nice condition.
