First issue of a very rare American title...
Item # 689734 THE MONTHLY MAGAZINE, AND AMERICAN REVIEW, (New York), April, 1799
* Volume 1 No. 1
We find it quite difficult to find any 18th century American magazines, let alone one this scarce, it lasting from just April, 1799 (making this vol. 1 #1) to December, 1800 for a total of just 21 issues published.
Among the articles within are: "On the State of American Literature" & "On the Invention of the Telegraph with a Description of That Proposed by Dr. Hooke".
Eighty pages, lacking a full title page for the issue, however the titlepage for the volume is included to verify the city of publication, 5 by 8 1/2 inches, very nice condition.
Category: The 1600's and 1700's
