18674 ALNWICK JOURNAL. THE ALNWICK JOURNAL AND NORTHERN LIGHTS. Vol 1, No. 1, [Alnwick: no imprint], July, 1871. 4to, (252x162mm), 16p. folded, unsewn, uncovered and entirely unopened in the head folded. Very lightly dust-soiled at the head of the first leaf, otherwise a very fine and undamaged copy. Printed on two half-sheets this has merely been folded to size and left unopened and therefore is utterly as issued. We find it strange that there is no printer's imprint,  office address or editorial matter to assist in identifying the editor, proprietor, or printer. Perhaps such sophistications would have been present on a sewn or tipped on wrapper, but none is present and there is certainly no evidence of any having ever been present. However, Manders Bibliography of British newspapers: Durham and Northumberland (1982) records a monthly under the title of Alnwick Journal and domestic monthly, edited we believe by John Lamb Luckley, which began a new series in July 1871 and although Manders notes no change in the sub-title, we must conclude that that is what this is. As well as local material, a considerable amount of space, and 3 illustrations, are devoted to the game of draughts. £40.00
