    Abstract

    This article provides a new perspective on global journalism in the nineteenth century via an examination of the News of the World, a newspaper published in California in the 1870s for an international readership. Steamship newspapers like the News of the World played an important role in global news distribution in the nineteenth century. By the 1870s, however, their viability was being undermined by the growth of the international telegraph network and the development of international news agencies. This case study of the origins and demise of a particular newspaper demonstrates how press history is embedded in the history of transport and communication technologies
