* More than 1 available at this severely discounted price
This is the world's oldest continually published English language newspaper, having begun in 1665 and is still printing in London to this day. And this is a very early, genuine issue. As was the case with most newspapers of the 17th century, this is complete as a single sheet, measuring 6 1/2 by 10 3/4 inches and printed on very high quality paper with much cotton & linen fiber content.
The issue you receive will be filled with various news of the day from various cities in Europe, each report with its own dateline, and even includes several "Advertisements" on the back page. Still in very nice condition. Given its small size this would be a nice newspaper for framing & display with the 330+ year old date prominent at the top.
Note: While the issue date shows 1/1/1677, the actual issues being offered will vary in date from 1677-1679. The photos shown are only representative of the look and condition of these issues.
