All of the historic newspapers we have at Timothy Hughes Rare & Early Newspapers are authentic originals, not reprints—we guarantee it! Whether you're looking for a birthday newspaper or searching for another “gem” to add to your growing collection, we are certain you will be pleased with our wide selection, fair prices, and dedication to providing a positive experience as you shop with us.

More Than Just “Old Newspapers”

The rare newspapers we sell are genuine historical artifacts. In fact, we have historic newspapers on display at The Smithsonian Institute, the Newseum, The National Civil War Museum (Harrisburg, PA), and the Supreme Court of the United States. These museums and government institutions realize the value a historic newspaper provides in preserving history for future generations. We are proud to be a partner in this endeavor and remain steadfast in our belief that “History is never more fascinating than when read from the day it was first reported.”

But still, there are some who see an old newspaper and wouldn't think twice about tossing it aside, while others recognize a piece of history that deserves to be preserved and treasured. At Timothy Hughes Rare & Early Newspapers, it is our mission to preserve history and make it available to you, because we believe these historic newspapers are significant as a matter of historical record.
