Broadside, oblong folio, engraved, slight loss to bottom left corner of imprint losing first 4 letters of "London" and the "M" of Mr, lightly browned, printed one side. A Satire on the financial panic at the end of the Seven Years War (which incorporated the French/Indian War) when excessive lending led to the collapse of trading. Jonathan's Coffee House, established in 1680, was the place in 1698 where the first posting of Stock Prices took place. Then in 1761 a club of 150 brokers and jobbers was formed to trade Stocks, thus establishing the Stock Exchange. The Coffee House was burnt down in 1778 but the Stock Exchange had already moved to new premises. BM. No. 4091. N° de ref. de la librería 16329
