"The Cape Town Gazette is of great interest to us from two points of view. Firstly of course it is the first newspaper and advertising medium published at the Cape and hence one of the earliest products of the printing press in this part of the world, while secondly - and of wider appeal - it is an invaluable source of information about various aspects of Cape life, both public and private."
