Very EARLY Rare WOMAN Publisher OBSERVATOR London 337 Years Old 1681 Newspaper


eBay Fixed Price Item # 391962903280

Shown is an original & historic old newspaper, offered to enhance your collectible interest: THE OBSERVATOR, London, November 22, 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.

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?
