Educational publisher Cengage Learning has digitised more than three quarters of a million pages stretching back from its launch of the paper in 1888 to the end of 2006.

Cengage has previously digitised the archives of the Times and the Economist. It has also but the British Library’s archive of 19 Century newspapers online.
