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, 2017 newsletter is as follows:

Dear Friend of Rare & Early Newspapers,

Welcome to the October edition of our member’s newsletter. Below please find a new set of issues priced at 50% off, a link to new listings, a free issue (see note for details), and a few other goodies. Please enjoy.

Free Issue – This month we are offering a free issue (buy 1 get one free) of the National Gazette & Literary Register, from Philadelphia, 1832-34. In order to receive the free issue you must purchase at least one other issue. Any issue, regardless of its price, is acceptable. No additional S&H will be added for this item (unless a storage option is added). There is a limit of 1 free issue per collector, and is available while inventory remains. This listing may be viewed at: Buy 1 or more issues, get a National Gazette for Free

*Discounted Newspapers – Over 250 newspapers have been reduced in price by 50% (through November 16th) and may be viewed at: Discounted Newspapers. The prices shown already reflect the discount. Some of the noteworthy content/issues include: multiple Confederate titles, the very first Daytona 500, the Battle of Bull Run, a New Mexico Territorial newspaper, nice Gold rush content, an issue with a George Washington signature on the front page, the debut of Gone With The Wind, an issue on the Whisky Rebellion, and more.

Catalog 263 continues to be available. The following two links include the remaining items along with remnants for #262:

Recent Listings – Over 700 items have been listed within the last 20 days, many of which will never appear in catalogs. They may be viewed at: Recent Listings

New Inventory – In case you missed the announcement… Although most have yet to be listed, we have recently acquired a nice set of New York Heralds from the CW era, and a nice collection of Gentleman’s Magazines covering much of the 18th and 19th centuries. If you have an issue you’ve been seeking, we likely have it. Please be in touch.

History’s Newsstand Blog – Some of the recent posts include:

* Regarding our discounted issues… Why the extreme discount? Having over 15,000 items posted on the Rare & Early Newspapers website, with most links showing the most recently listed items first, there are undoubtedly a host of great items which simply become overlooked. These selected discounts enable us to bring a handful of these to light while benefiting our members.

Thanks for collecting with us.

    I have a copy of the Chattanooga Daily Times October 25, 1921 issue. Titled Confederate Reunion Supplement. It has a picture of Jefferson Davis on the front. Was just wondering if it was worth anything. Thanks
