Earliest newspaper in your collection?

Item # 671850

November 30, 1641

NOUVELLES, Paris, France, November 30, 1641  The heading roughly translates to: "Ordinary News". This issue predates the earliest English language newspaper we have in our inventory. 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.  The first letter of the title and the text are very ornate. All text is in French.
Four pages, 6 by 9 inches, great condition.

Item from Catalog 301 (released for December, 2020)...
