Newspaper Reporting




Elliot Stock










1st edition






This work is part of the "Book-Lovers Library" series which was edited by Henry B. Wheatley (1838 - 1917). Wheatley was a historian, librarian and scholar of repute and editor of the Book-Lovers Library series. Quoted from the author's "Preface."

"The English Press is, in our own day, whatever it may have been in the past, of great interest to the English people. It is their chronicler; its work is to give a reflex of their daily lives — of their enterprise in commerce, of their industry, of their government, of their struggle for a nobler social condition, of their happiness and misery. The English Press has had far more to do with the true making of this land than the horde of ancestors to whom the credit has been given; for, notwithstanding its faults, the Press has done much towards lifting England out of the darkness of prejudice and ignorance. How it did it will some day be written; but this little book makes no pretension even to dip into such a task. It is not a history of journalism. It is not a history of shorthand. It deals simply with the Newspaper Reporter and his toil, pointing out how and under what conditions he does his work as the
daily historian of the time. Considering the variety of that work, the many phases of society with which the reporter becomes familiar, and the strange incidents inseparable from his career, the story of his journalistic life should not be unattractive either to the ordinary reader or to the book-lover, especially as it contains many references to the quaint literature of
the past, and indicates the change in the mode of recording events since the time when the old-fashioned news-letter became neglected, and its place better filled by that new friend, instructor, and critic — the daily newspaper."
