SEE PHOTO----- COMPLETE, ORIGINAL and very early newsbook (the direct precurser to the newspaper) titled "The Present State of EUROPE: or the ...MONTHLY MERCURY, Giving an Account of all the public and private OCCURENCES...for the Month of ..." This early newsbook / newspaper was printed in London, England and consists of approximately 48 pages, the dimensions of which are 8" x 7". The exact issue that buyer will receive will be picked at random from our inventory of this 300 year old newspaper title dated between 1701 and 1714 and will have news of the War of the Spanish Succession (known in America as Queen Anne's War) -see below. The photos above are to illustrate the apppearance, display, and condition of the newspaper that the buyer will receive. The exact date will be different than the one in the photo.

This newsbook was issued monthly and each issue has the date of publication on the front page. The news inside is formatted by headings indicating the country from which the news was coming (France, England, Spain, Poland, Russia, Portugal, Switzerland, Italy, the Netherlands, Germany, Turkey, Ireland, etc). The news coverage has mostly to do with the various countries of Europe in general and the Royalty of Europe in particular. There is lots of coverage of WARS, treaties, important people, commerce, deaths, disasters, Kings, Queens, ie- all the news that one sees in todays newspapers

The War of the Spanish Succession (17011714), which included Queen Anne's War in North America, was a major European conflict over the succession to the Spanish throne, and the resulting shift in the European balance of power and Spanish ruling dynasty. The war lasted over a decade, and was marked by the military leadership of notable generals such as the duc de Villars and the Duke of Berwick, the Duke of Marlborough, and Prince Eugene of Savoy.

In 1700, Charles II died and had bequeathed all of his possessions to Philip, duc d'Anjou — a grandson of the French King Louis XIV — who thereby became Philip V of Spain. The war began slowly, as the Holy Roman Emperor Leopold I of Habsburg fought to protect his own dynasty's claim to the Spanish inheritance. As Louis XIV began to expand his territories more aggressively, however, other European nations (chiefly England, Portugal and the Dutch Republic) entered on the Holy Roman Empire's side to check French expansion. Other states joined the coalition opposing France and Spain in an attempt to acquire new territories, or to protect existing dominions. The war was fought not only in Europe, but also in North America, where the conflict became known to the English colonists as Queen Anne's War, and by corsairs and privateers along the Spanish Main. Over the course of the fighting, some 400,000 people were killed.

The war was concluded by the treaties of Utrecht (1713) and Rastatt (1714). As a result, Philip V remained King of Spain but was removed from the French line of succession, thereby averting a union of the two kingdoms. The Austrians gained most of the Spanish territories in Italy and the Netherlands. As a consequence, France's hegemony over continental Europe was ended, and the idea of a balance of power became a part of the international order due to its mention in the Treaty of Utrecht.
