Item # 704118

November 18, 1693

ATHENIAN MERCURY, London, England, Nov. 18, 1693

* Rare Salem witch trials advertisement
* Very early and rare 17th century title


This was a "gentleman's" newspaper very popular in the coffeehouses of early England. Interesting reading on a wide range of topics done in question/answer format. Published at a time when there were no newspapers printing in the American colonies.
The back page has a nice ad for a book: "The TRYALS of several Quakers for great Misdemeanors before A Court of Quakers at the Sessions held at Philadelphia in Pensylania...".
A single sheet newspaper printed on both sides, 7 1/4 by 12 inches, nice condition.

Item from Catalog 342 (released for May, 2024)
