Tyger's Head Books

Mercurius Civicus, volumes I & II

Tyger’s Head Books is pleased to announce the release of volumes I & II of Mercurius Civicus, London’s Intelligencer.


Civicus, widely attributed to editor and soldier Richard Collings, was a newsbook published in London between May 1643 and December 1646. It covered news both in London and further afield, mostly concerning the military and political events of the Civil War but often including reports of everyday public interest in the capital.

Volume I covers May-December 1643; volume II covers December 1643-December 1644. Two further volumes will follow in due course, covering 1645/6. Please visit the Tyger’s Head Books website for details.
