World's first daily newspaper...
Item # 630217
January 22, 1726
THE DAILY COURANT, London, Jan. 22, 1726
* Rare 18th century title
This was the world's first successful daily newspaper, and is a landmark issue for any newspaper collection as such. It began in 1702. As would be imagined the issue is almost entirely taken up with various European reports, with half of the back page taken up with advertisements.
Complete as a single sheet newspaper measuring 8 1/2 by 14 1/4 inches and desirable as this was never bound nor trimmed. Very nice condition.
