First Scandinavian newspaper (1749) digitalized for download

Hans from Newspaperindex was able to get hold of and scan the first omnibus newspaper ever published in Scandinavia from January 1749 (thanks Boing Boing!).

The newspaper is in very good condition since it was not printed on paper made from wood but from flax and cotton that can last for much longer time. It is kept inside a book in a privately owned historic library in the countryside in the snow covered hilly in East Jutland in Denmark. Only a handful of other copies are held in The Royal Danish Library in Copenhagen, but this is the first time the publication has been scanned and made public in the digital world. The newspaper has the title ôKj°benhavnske Danske Post Tidenderö, a few years after it changed name to Berlingske Tidende. This first edition had 8 pages and it was since printed twice a week.

Download the entire newspaper as pdf here (you better know gothic Danish to make any sense out of it!).
