News from nearly 300 years ago...

Item # 696721

September 23, 1727

MIST'S WEEKLY JOURNAL, London, Sept. 23, 1727  

* Rare 18th century title
* Red tax stamp

A quite rare title containing a wide variety of news of the day. Obviously much news from London, including a bit noting that: "Several scaffolds erected against the coronation have been demolished by the surveyors o the works, not being substantially built." Another item notes two soldiers were executed at Tyburn for "housebreaking".
A wealth of advertisements as well, consuming most of pages 3 and 4.
Four pages, never-trimmed margins, full red tax stamp on the front page, 9 1/2 by 12 inches, archival repair at the blank spine, nice condition.
