Devon newspapers 1704-2004

Exeter working papers in book history ; 24
Devon newspaper bibliography, 1704-2004.

This bibliography of three centuries of Devon newspapers is based on the Devon section of Bibliography of British Newspapers: Cornwall and Devon, edited by Jean Rowles (Cornwall) and Ian Maxted (Devon) (London: British Library, 1991). It has been amended to reflect recent discoveries and the work of the Newsplan project to microfilm and conserve British provincial newspapers and reflects the state of knowledge in 2005. It is subject to further revision, especially as far as the availability of microfilm files is concerned, and enquiry should always be made of a holding library before a visit is made. Microfilm files are normally highlighted in bold type as, where such files are available, access to the originals is not normally possible. Newspapers are extremely fragile and survive in very few copies, so the originals must be safeguarded as archival items for the future. Coverage of this Devon listing includes some titles published outside Devon where they circulated extensively within the county or had Devon news coverage. For fuller details of these titles enquire with the relevant county or the British Library Newspaper Library. The compiler would be grateful for corrections, indications of bad links etc.

The edition is not specified on every issue and sometimes the Devon edition was supplied in place of the East Devon [...] edition. The "all-editions" microfilm which starts in January 1975 normally shows change pages from the main Plymouth area edition for Cornwall, Devon, Exeter East Devon [and Somerset], and North Devon. Again not all editions appear for all issues. In the microfilms for July and August 1984, for example, which were specially checked to establish the change-over date from the Exeter East Devon and Somerset to the Exeter and East Devon edition, no Exeter [...] editions were included despite the fact that Exeter was receiving them. This may be due to the absence of change pages for those days, but the hard-copy has not been checked against the microfilms.
