Color: Black & White
7.5 x 9.4 inches

Nicely engraved map bound in the March 1747 issue, which calls for a map of Italy. This map, however, is an 1810 issue by J. Wilkes, not the original 1747 map. Also includes a copper engraved plan of the historic Westminster Hall plus a detailed view of the scaffolding. Many outrageous articles including one proposing the use of daily electric shocks to vegetables to improve their growth and circulation.
Some offsetting and toned, more so at top.
