Welcome to the History’s Newsstand Blog published by Timothy Hughes Rare & Early Newspapers.  The heart behind the blog is to provide an environment where the love and knowledge of the hobby will be advanced. Over the years many of our fellow collectors have requested such a forum where they can both present their thoughts regarding the collectible and solicit advice from Tim, all with an intention of increasing the awareness of this wonderful, yet relatively unknown collectible. Our hope is that through ongoing discussion focused on early newspapers, novices and experienced collectors alike will benefit from the dialog.  We are honored and excited about the opportunity to help guide such discourse.

Future posts will cover topics related to noteworthy headlines, contemporary reporting of major historic events, the pricing & valuation of old newspapers, preservation & storage, what makes collecting rare newspapers different (and we believe more interesting) than other collectibles (finding golden nuggets, viewing history intimately through the eyes of those whom were there, etc.), the impact of historic newspapers on revisionist history, how to build a collection, and much more.  There will also be an opportunity for our collector friends to share their experiences.  It is a journey we will take together. Hopefully we will have fun, grow in knowledge, and develop a sense of community.

We welcome and encourage relevant comments and discussion, but fully expect participants to be respectful and considerate of the authors and our business. Since our core values are firmly planted upon the solid foundation of the Judeo-Christian ethic, we ask that all discussion be family friendly.  We reserve the right to moderate, delete or edit comments that are vulgar, disrespectful, spam, clearly off topic, or that promote other services and products. Thank you for your understanding.
