On the Cape Cod Lighthouse...



Item # 695903

December 01, 1797

NEW YORK MAGAZINE OR LITERARY REPOSITORY, December, 1797  

* Highland Lighthouse
* North Truro, Massachusetts
* Cape Cod seashore


The issue is filled mostly with an eclectic collection of articles, while the back several pages contain news items of the day.
Among the articles are: "Directions for Observing Cape Cod Light-House" which takes 1 1/2 pages; "Character of Louis XVI" which takes nearly 2 pages; and: "On the Equestrian Art" plus much more.
This is followed by over two pages of news which includes details on the construction of the Bank of the United States in New York. 
There are no plates present.
Certainly one of the less common 18th century American magazine titles, existing from just 1790 to 1797.
Complete in 56 pages, 5 by 8 inches, lacking a full title/contents page, some foxing, nice condition.
