Just a very handsome issue for display...



Item # 695806

December 28, 1815

NEWE GAZETTE VAN BRUGGE, Belgium, Dec. 28, 1815  Sometimes it's nice just to be handsome to be collectible. This issue is not particularly early for a European title, nor am I aware of any historic content. But the masthead is deep, it includes a coat-of-arms engraving, and has beautifully ornate lettering in the title, not to mention two tax stamps in the masthead. And it was never bound nor trimmed, and is small enough to frame economically--hence a logical addition to our private collection.
Four pages, 8 1/2 by 13 3/4 inches, great condition.

Item from Catalog 342 (released for May, 2024)
