THE GAZETTEER, And New Daily Advertiser. London, Wednesday, 30 January, 1793.

Mary Vint: London 1793 18.25 X 12.5, unpag (4 pp). Removal marks, edge toning, chipping, small tears, creasing, light soiling, rubbing else good. Halfpenny stamp on first page. Much on the troubles in/with France: assassination of Michel Le Pelletier (he supposedly cast the deciding vote to kill Louis XVI), requests from Marie Antoinette to the Commissioners, English and Dutch fleets off the Dutch coast prior to engaging in war with France. Some of the book ads: "The Lady's Complete Guide: Or Cookery and Confectionary in All Their Branches" by Mrs. Mary Cole, the "Wonderful Magazine" which contains articles such as "A Camp Set on Fire by Sparrows" and "A Woman with Child 27 Years." Altogether an interesting read.
