The Sunday Times (1822)

The Sunday Times had a brief pre-history as first The New Observer and then The Independent Observer, beginning publication in the Spring of 1821. In the last of a series of attempts to associate itself with more established publications, although it had no institutional connection to either The Observer or The Times, it was re-launched by Henry White in October 1822 as The Sunday Times, and the following year sold to radical politician Daniel Whittle Harvey.
