Earliest newspaper in your collection?



Item # 643876

December 10, 1644

NOUVELLES, Paris, France, December 10, 1644  This issue predates the earliest English language newspaper we have in our inventory by several years. It was the "sister" publication of the "Gazette", the very first regular newspaper published in France, started in 1631 by Théophraste Renaudot but with influential backing by the powerful Cardinal de Richelieu. This title translates to "Regular News".  The first letter of the title and the text are very ornate (see). All text is in French. A very rare opportunity for perhaps the earliest dated newspaper in your collection. In very nice condition with a bit of spotting & very light damp staining at the bottom.
