Very displayable Edinburgh, Scotland newspaper...
Item # 687308
August 11, 1726
THE EDINBURGH EVENING COURANT, Scotland, Aug. 11, 1726
* Very rare title from the early 18th century
* Nice masthead engravings
See the photos for one of the more beautiful, displayable mastheads of the 18th century featuring two woodblock engravings, one showing postboys on horseback trumpeting the news, and the other showing a winged angel trumpeting the news.
Additionally, the first letter in the first column is within yet another very decorative engraving, all making the front page quite displayable.
This four page newspaper contains various news of the day. The bottom of the front page is slightly close-trimmed causing partial loss to the bottom line, and partial loss to the imprint at the bottom of the back page as well. Otherwise this issue is in quite nice condition with a partial red-inked tax stamp on page 3. Measures 7 3/4 by 9 1/4 inches.
