 We have been collectors and dealers of Rare & Early Newspapers since 1975. Timothy Hughes, our founder, is still the centerpiece of our efforts, with Guy Heilenman serving as part-owner and the manager of daily affairs. We only offer authentic originals (no reproductions). Some of the most collectible topics, titles, and categories include: the Oxford/London Gazette (dating back to 1665, British and Colonial American titles from the 1700's (including the Revolutionary War era), reports re: many of the Founding Fathers of America - Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, Hamilton, etc., the War of 1812, the Civil War, the Old West era, one of the largest offerings of Harper's Weekly (including prints by Thomas Nast and Winslow Homer), and most historic events of the 20th Century - politcs, sports, inventions, disasters, triumphs, and more. “History is never more fascinating than when read from the day it was first reported.” (Tim Hughes, Founder of Rare & Early Newspapers, 1976)
