About this title


From the introduction: "From the earliest days of newspaper publishing, the high affairs of church and state, trade and politics, have generated acres of print. Often the passionately debated issues of the past are forgotten today, and of interest only to historians. But the first newspapers also found space to record more off-beat events: the birth of a four-legged boy, a death by lightning, the antics of a drunken cow, some remarkable medical prodigy. Their fascination is eternal."
The bulk of this book was compiled from newspaper reports consulted at the Bodleian Library in Oxford and the British Museum Newspaper Library in Colindale.
