Benjamin Collins and the Provincial Newspaper Trade in the Eighteenth Century
This is a pioneering study of the English provincial newspaper and book trades in the eighteenth century. C. Y. Ferdinand uses the first thoroughgoing study of the Salisbury Journal and its competitors to reveal how country newspapers worked within and influenced the developing information systems of a region. The detailed revelations of a community's social, economic, literary, and cultural interests extend well beyond Salisbury to the surrounding counties and to London. A hitherto hidden commercial infrastructure shows the interdependent relationship between the writers and makers of newspapers, the principal members of the London book trade, and the new market for the printed word.
