Buy Old Newspapers Online

At Papers Past, we pride ourselves on maintaining a link to Britain's past, through our massive archive of newspapers dating back over 100 years. You can order an edition of The Times from any date of your choosing and we will endeavour to get it out to you the same day. What better present for that special someone in your life? Our old newspapers make fantastic old newspapers birthday gifts which will get the whole family talking.

Our business came about due to our archivist Ian Willsher's zeal for preserving these historic records, which were previously held by libraries but were in danger of destruction with the advent of microfilm. Now we store them in warehouses across West Cornwall, amounting to over 200 tons of papers. When you contact us we will check the stock for availability and if all is well, we can get the order out to you on the same day. Choose from our standard or deluxe gift packages, which include items such as a certificate of authenticity, acid-free wrapping paper, Fairtrade gift bag, a newspaper design gift bag, and a lavish black cloth bound folder with the deluxe edition. So visit today to order that perfect gift.
