Catalog Record | Enlarge Image | Adopt a Book Home

This is one of the first penny press papers of Boston. The goal of many newspaper publishers in the big cities was to find a way to produce a daily paper that could be sold for one cent. The balance between cheapness and profitability was quite fine and many went out of business. Like other titles, The World in a Nut Shell was a lowbrow paper aiming for a mass audience of readers. It lasted at most a year before disappearing.

Adopted by Rodney and Natalie Ferris
