LONDON: The 232-year-old copy of the Hampshire Chronicle has been found and returned to the newspaper.
It is remarkably well-preserved for a paper produced when the Hampshire Chronicle had only been going for six years.
For decades it had been stored away at the home in Basingstoke of Muriel Pink, who recently died aged 97.
The Hampshire Chronicle for Monday April 27 1778, cost three pence, quite expensive as newspapers were still heavily taxed at the time.
