Old 19th century newspapers x 13, mostly Hobart under $20 each! $A250

This discussion clearly led a few years later to the 1877 'Ashes' First Test match

13 x 19th century large format 'broadsheet' newspapers - fascinating glimpses into the past!

Includes a rare very early issue of 'The Australasian' printed in Melbourne, this copy April 1869 - this one from later that same year is on offer for $A300+ - www.ebay.com.au/itm/400866705659 - do take a look - it shows dozens more of the same wacky ads and articles that are in there - saves me some scanning!

'The Australasian' Saturday April 24 1869
'The Times' (London) Friday May 15 1873
The Times London Thursday May 6 1880
'The Mercury' (Hobart) Wednesday October 27 1886
The Mercury Wednesday October 28 1886
The Mercury Thursday October 29 1886
The Mercury Saturday October 30 1886
The Mercury Monday November 1 1886
The Mercury Tuesday November 2 1886
The Mercury Wednesday November 3 1886
The Mercury Thursday November 4 1886
The Mercury Friday November 5 1886
The Mercury Saturday November 6 1886

FAR superior than usual condition for newspapers of this age, as on all were printed on highly acidic low grade newsprint 150 years ago!

A wonderful lot for an Ebay reseller etc. If they are on eBay now at $300 EACH, getting just $40 apiece doubles your money. And WHO ELSE has them on offer? You are competing against no-one. :)

Check for sellers of 19th Century Hobart newspapers - there are NONE -

I just do not have time lately, to mess about with splitting these up. UNDER $20 apiece - :mrgreen:

$A250 plus Global Post

Call it - "Newspapers : Stock 928VG " - please order via new HTTPS encrypted SECURE site - www.tinyurl.com/GlensOrder And please do that NOW. Too many think “I’ll do that later” and then quickly “forget”. I then often lose the stamps in the rubble here, and waste an annoying hour finding them again. :twisted:


All payment details etc are on: www.tinyurl.com/GlenPay - NICE VFU franking is always used, and I ALWAYS use stamps of some kind locally : see member pix of some of that franking here - www.tinyurl.com/GlenCTO COMBINED POSTAGE is fine - save big money when buying more than 1 lot at once! For overseas members, to find out the approx goods cost in YOUR currency, click here - www.xe.com - the $A has CRASHED lately, and for USA buyers etc, my prices are REALLY cheap in your money - lowest for years! MONEY BACK GUARANTEE - don't like it - mail it back within 48 hours of receiving it. No-one ever has yet. :)

Remember, adding another lot of mine (posted by either Admin, GlenStephens or Global Admin or ozstamps) here (or on my RARITY website www.tinyurl.com/RarityGlen ) for sale, in general adds ZERO to your shipping cost, so have a good look at what is on offer on the pages here, in case something else appeals. And "lay-by/layaway" is always possible - email me with any queries to ozstamps [at] outlook dot com - OR "trade-ins" always possible! If you have a pile of surplus stuff, I may well be happy to offset that against this item, see: www.tinyurl.com/GlenBuy

As most know - I do NO fairs or shows, have NO shop, and do NOT bother with eBay or any other auctions. I buy endless bulk lots from Estates, and distress sales etc, in this massive city of 6 million, with no other real stamp buyers here, and offer it here at *NETT* prices for fast turnover. NO "20%-25% Buyer Fees" and “3% credit card fees” to add to my *NETT* prices, as in auction! ZERO extra charged to use any cards - or PayPal in ANY currency. Many similar mouth-watering NETT price offers are being loaded weekly onto - www.tinyurl.com/GlenRare and www.tinyurl.com/StampDeals

Orders over $75 are ALWAYS sent Registered (but Max PO cover is for $A100 only sadly) - cost is extra $A4 local. Request this on order form IF you require it, under $A100. Letter size FOREIGN sendings globally are usually only about $4 untracked. Smallish, large packet items *FOREIGN* up to 500g/1lb are normally sent in stout card pre-paid *EXPRESS* or Registered Envelopes, cost $A20 generally, near always dodging you inward VAT/GST Taxes/Fees! 😊

"All Risk" Insurance is always possible if required as well, and is cheap and prudent at $A2 per $A100 covered locally, or $3 per $A100 overseas - and all buyers are strongly advised to use this, and I generally will add it automatically, unless asked not to. Full detail on all of this - www.tinyurl.com/Glen2-15 - Phone me anytime with any queries on these stamps: 0409 - 399 - 888
