Boston troubles... Gambling...

Item # 703640 SUPPLEMENT TO THE GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE FOR THE YEAR 1767, London. This is the "supplemental" issue published at the end of the year and having on the front page the table of contents and the title (see).
Perhaps the prime feature is the very nice foldout plate which shows: "...an elegant prospect in the gardens of her Royal Highness the Princess Dowager of Wales, at Kew." (see). Also within this issue is: "A Remarkable Lawsuit on a Case of Gaming" "Strictures Upon the Game Laws"  "Edicts in France Against Gaming" and an interesting article: "Remarks on the Boston Association" (see for portions) which includes: "...It would be to no purpose at present to renew a discussion of the merits of the stamp act..." and more.
Complete in 28 pages, 5 by 8 inches, very nice condition.

Item from Catalog 342 (released for May, 2024)
