THE PRESENT STATE OF EUROPE OR THE HISTORICAL & POLITICAL MONTHLY MERCURY, London, England, November, 1697 
This is an uncommon periodical published during the reign of King William III, formatted something like a pamphlet but definitely a periodical, with the more extended title reading: "... Giving an Account of all the Publick and Private Occurrences, Civil, Ecclesiastical, and Military, that are most considerable in every Court: The Interest of Princes, their Pretensions, and Intrigues, etc."
Much of this issue is concerned with the political & military affairs of Europe & is organized into news by country or region with commentary on the events.
A nice feature of this periodical is the full title page which includes the date. Measures 5 1/2 by 7 1/4 inches, 48 pages, foxing throughout, nice condition.

Item from Catalog 343 (released for June, 2024)
