General Information

All papers sent will be a genuine original & complete newspaper (not a copy) from an available date in the 19th Century or earlier.

An original newspaper will be sent from your selected Year but we cannot commit to a date in that year. Up to 1829 we will send a paper that is at least this old, but cannot commit to a specified year pre 1830.

Most of our stock of Victorian Newspapers is The Times, although this title cannot be guaranteed in every instance.

How are the papers stored? For centuries up until the last few years, newspaper back copies for each month were bound in leather binders to preserve and protect them and allow researchers easy access. This is how the vast majority of our archive papers are now stored. When a newspaper is sold, the paper is carefully removed out of the binding, and prepared by hand for sale.

We sell a huge range of original newspapers from any date of your choice, sourced directly from the UKs largest private archive. Find Out More...

Fabulous Purchase I purchased an 1860 newspaper for my wife (her idea) for her birthday. When the paper arrived we were both amazed and delighted with the condition (virtually as new) as well as the incredible social history that our paper contained. It has provided us with great insight into society at the time of publication. We will definitely be ordering other editions. 27 November 2013
Christmas present with a difference.... I bought this newspaper as a xmas present for my brother in law. He has a keen interest in history. I wanted something different and unique - something more interesting than socks and hankies.....! A GENUINE piece of history that will be treasured and passed on to future generations 29 October 2012
