Each month the staff of Timothy Hughes Rare & Early Newspapers sends out a newsletter to our members which includes special offers, discounts, alerts to new inventory, and information related to the rare newspaper collectible.

The October, 2018 newsletter:

I’M TRULY EXCITED about this month’s newsletter. During the past month we’ve had the privilege of acquiring some of the most desirable inventory to-date (40+ years), and some are starting to show up in our listings. Additionally, we’re offering a set of more than 1,000 issues discounted by 75% (not a typo). Other items include a link to items which were added to Catalog 275 after it had gone to print (including a handful of gems from our most recent acquisitions), perhaps the best coverage of The Dred Scott Case to be had (offered as a set), and a selection of recent posts from our History’s Newsstand Blog (re: the Intolerable Acts, the Boston Tea Party, etc.). Please enjoy.
Discounted Newspapers ~ 75% off (not a typo) – Well-over 1,000 new items are now discounted by 75% through November 15, 2018. Why the severe price-reduction? Although many have great content, they are buried deep within our website’s search results, and quite honestly, thanks to our recent acquisitions, we need the space.

Catalog 275 – Enjoy the remaining items from our latest catalog of historic newspapers.

Newly Discovered Items (with a focus on those which were added to the above catalog after it had gone to print) – A desirable Virginia Gazette from 1775 with reflections on The Boston Massacre, perhaps the best set of issues related to the Dred Scott Case ever offered, a super issue regarding Israeli Statehood, and others with coverage related to Walt Whitman, the 1929 Stock Market Crash, Gandhi, Thomas Edison, Al Capone, Babe Ruth, and more: Newly Discovered Items
Notice: We’ve just acquired an incredible set of Chicago Tribunes which span the gangster era (see our eBay store and/or our website for some initial examples), a set of Virginia Gazettes (Williamsburg, VA) from just before the Revolutionary War (one of the most collectible and rare titles to be found), an early set of 19th-century NY Heralds, and more. Keep your eyes open.
