It is rare for us to find any Irish newspapers from the 18th century let alone one from the 1750's.
Inside hs a report noting: "...letter by the Lilly...from Virginia, mentions the taking of Fort DuQuesne by General Forbes..." with more.
Much other news of the day & a wealth of ads, several illustrated.
Eight pages, 8 3/4 by 10 1/2 inches, the first letter on the front page having an ornate engraving, great condition.
