Very EARLY Rare WOMAN Publisher OBSERVATOR London 338 Years Old 1681 Newspaper


eBay Fixed Price Item # 392319921410

Offered is an original, historic, & collectible old newspaper: THE OBSERVATOR, London, November 19, 1681 * Woman publisher This is a handsome dialogue newspaper founded by Sir Roger L'Estrange, a Tory pamphleteer, as a vehicle for attacking dissenters and Whigs. Done in a dialogue format, between Whig & Tory. This early single sheet newspaper has the old style type making it great for framing, but the most intriguing aspect of this issue is that the imprint at the bottom of the back page reads: "London, Printed for Joanna Brome, at the Gun in S. Paul's Church-yard." I believe this to be the earliest periodical we have offered published by a woman. Could it be the earliest woman publisher to be found within a newspaper? Single sheet, 8 by 13 inches, nice condition.
