What date does a 1738 British author intend by “soon after the revolution”?


In the February 1738 The Gentleman's Magazine, Volume XIII at page 80:

It is stated:

Since this immediately follows a paragraph describing how the game was played during the reigns of Charles II and James II, it is clear that "the Revolution" referred to here is The Glorious Revolution of 1688.
