This newspaper /magazine contains an inside , 1/2 page engraving and text description of an early clock and its mechanism. Great "companion piece" for a serious collector of early clocks and time pieces. The Gentleman's Magazine was founded in London, England, by Edward Cave in January 1731. It ran uninterrupted for almost 200 years, until 1922. It was the first to use the term "magazine" (from the Arabic maḫāzin, meaning "storehouse") for a periodical. Samuel Johnson's first regular employment as a writer was with The Gentleman's Magazine. The original complete title was The Gentleman's Magazine: or, Trader's monthly intelligencer. Cave's innovation was to create a monthly digest of news and commentary on any topic the educated public might be interested in, from commodity prices to Latin poetry. It carried original content from a stable of regular contributors, as well as extensive quotes and extracts from other periodicals and books. Cave, who edited The Gentleman's Magazine under the pen name "Sylvanus Urban", was the first to use the term "magazine" (meaning "storehouse") for a periodical. Contributions to the magazine frequently took the form of letters, addressed to "Mr. Urban". The iconic illustration of St John's Gate on the front of each issue (occasionally updated over the years) depicted Cave's home, in effect, the magazine's "office". Before the founding of The Gentleman's Magazine, there were specialized journals, but no such wide-ranging publication (although there had been attempts, such as The Gentleman's Journal, which was edited by Peter Motteux and ran from 1692 to 1694). This news magazine has approximately 60 pages and the page size is 8 1/4" x 5 1/4". The magazines were often issued with several blank back engraved illustrated plates relating to various subjects in that particular issue. The Gentleman's Magazine was in essence the "Time" or "Newsweek" news magazine of the 18th and 19th Centuries !! It was also one of the first general-interest magazines, and one of the most influential periodical of its time. Very good condition.
