Bibliographic details:
36 issues of a weekly single-half sheet newspaper (28 October 1704-23/30 June 1705), stitched together and represented as a miscellany. Title page refers to vol I; vol II appears to start at no. 25 (sig. Aa) (7/14 April 1705) but has no separate title page. Possibly only the first 24 numbers were sold as part of the reissued miscellany. Several newspapers in 'vol II' carry advertisements for vol I, e.g. no. 25, 26 etc. Early issues carry news as well as poetry, but from no. 11, no more news is included. Occasional items of prose, e.g. no. 8. Many issues of the paper carry advertisements for books, in particular Miscellanea Sacra. Imprints of the newspaper sheets: London, Printed and sold by B.
