The Great Outsiders

£14.99

Product description

Signed by the author on the title page. Small dent on lower back edge of hard cover and corresponding small area of damage on the dust jacket. Dust jacket also has faint discolouration on the spine and along the top edge of the back

This book, published to mark the centenary of the Daily Mail, looks at the history of the paper, from its founding in 1896 by Alfred Harmsworth, through to the outbreak of WW2. The book's author had unrestricted access to the Daily Mail archives.

Alfred Harmsworth - later Viscount Northcliffe - was the foremost genius of Fleet Street and the progenitor of the modern newspaper. His brother Harold - later Viscount Rothermere - took on the onerous task of making Alfred's paper into a paying proposition. Within twenty years the pair would own the largest magazine empire in the nation and two-thirds of the titles on Fleet Street, changing for ever the face of modern journalism.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
