Vintage Ladybird Book THE STORY OF NEWSPAPERS from the Achievements Series 601. Matte Hardback 1979.
"The daily newspaper is so much a part of our lives that we seldom stop to consider how many people and how much work is necessary to bring us the latest news and comment promptly."
"This book tells of these, and also something about the history of newspapers - the hand written bulletins used in the days of the Romans, the news-sheets and early newspapers which followed, the struggle to establish them despite crippling tax, and then the birth of growth of our present national newspapers."
