Early newspaper from Scotland...

Item # 696461

July 20, 1759

THE EDINBURGH EVENING COURANT, Scotland, July 17, 1759  

* French & Indian War era
* 18th century original
* Uncommon publication

A typical newspaper of the day from doing one of the final years of the French & Indian War in America. I find no American content save for a brief item: "This week a large quantity of gunpowder was shipped for New York." The back page is entirely taken up with ads.
Four pages, 9 1/2 by 14 1/2 inches, partial red tax stamp on the front page, great condition.
