A complete and authentic issue of Gentleman’s Magazine, London, disbound, VG. This June 1755 issue is 44 pages and contains three pages of speeches made by the Indian chiefs to the American Colonial Congress at Albany. In eloquent language, the Indian chiefs Hendrick and Abraham advise of the numerous mistreatments of the Colonial governments. As example, “The governors of Virginia and Canada are both quarelling over lands which are OURS....” Hendrick Theyanoguin (c. 1691 – September 8, 1755), whose name had several spelling variations, was an important Mohawk leader and member of the Bear Clan; he resided at Canajoharie or the Upper Mohawk Castle in colonial New York. He was a Speaker for the Mohawk Council. Theyanoguin was killed at the Battle of Lake George on September 8, 1755, on a mission to stop the southern advance of the French army. Additionally, a pullout engraving of 38 various sea shells - nice collection. The Gentleman's Magazine was founded in London, England, by Edward Cave in January 1731. It ran uninterrupted for almost 200 years, until 1922. 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".
