World's first daily newspaper...
Item # 682661
October 23, 1717
THE DAILY COURANT, London, Oct. 23, 1717
* Rare 18th century publication
This was the world's first successful daily newspaper, and is a landmark issue for any newspaper collection as such, having begun in 1702. As would be imagined the issue is almost entirely taken up with various European reports, with over half of the back page taken up with advertisements.
Complete as a single sheet newspaper measuring 7 by 13 3/4 inches, very nice condition.
