This chapter considers the conditions in the rapidly changing print industry of the mid-nineteenth-century; the appeal for the British, of Paris as a city where journalists occupied a respected position; and the nature of the various practical problems British journalists encountered, in peacetime and under war conditions, in getting their material to Britain. The final section examines the swift expansion and decline, in the first half of the century, of the Anglophone print business in Paris, remarking the constant self-reinvention of men such as James Acland, G. W. M. Reynolds, or the rogue, John Wilks, and the survival of Galignani’s Messenger from amongst the highly-competitive and often short-lived print ventures.

Keywords:   Acland, Galignani’s Messenger, print business, Reynolds, wartime, Wilks
