London's News Press shows that seventeenth-century England was very much part of a European-wide news community. The book presents a new print history that looks across Europe and the interconnecting political and religious groups with international networks. It tells the story of the printers and publishers engaged in the earliest, illicit publications, their sources and connections in Germany as well as the Netherlands, and traces the way legitimacy was achieved. These were the earliest printed periodical news publications. Periodicity and its implications for trade and customers is explored as well as the roles of publishers and editors. The period saw a much bigger circulation of news than had ever been experienced before. The book also describes the lively nature of relationships that ensued between news networkers (editors, writers and readers along their interconnecting chains). The subject is topical. Our understanding of reading and communications is undergoing major changes with the rise and proliferation of social media. James I and Charles I faced new media and an unprecedented growth in informed public opinion fuelled by a flow of information that was essentially beyond the reach of government control. So there are parallels with the contemporary struggle to adapt, and there is a corresponding growth in the publication of history books reflecting upon the origins of the public sphere and the development of public opinion. JAYNE E. E. BOYS is an independent scholar who lives in Suffolk and British Columbia.

A bold work. Challenging conventional scholarship, Boys makes a compelling case that war in Germany rather than civil war in England produced the first news serials and an informed public sphere. AMERICAN HISTORICAL REVIEW One of the great merits of this book is the author's thoroughness and care in handling the material, but more important than this is the quiet way in which Boys sets about revolutionizing existing accounts of seventeenth-century news. EUROPEAN HISTORY QUARTERLY In addition to increasing our understanding of the development of English periodicals, the monograph also helps explain the fascination with and establishes the importance of international news in early Stuart England. SEVENTEENTH-CENTURY NEWS An absorbing study of printed news in Jacobean and Caroline England. HISTORY TODAY There is a veritable flood of information in this book. JOURNAL OF BRITISH STUDIES A densely written, fascinating, and colourful study with some intriguing illustrations. SIXTEENTH CENTURY JOURNAL A welcome addition on a much needed topic: the role of foreign news in the printed serial news publications in the early seventeenth century. RENAISSANCE QUARTERLY [A] carefully researched and well-argued volume. [It] is undoubtedly a very significant contribution to our understanding of the reporting of the Thirty Years War, and foreign news generally, in the early London periodical press.
