The Nagasaki Shipping List and Advertiser, which was founded in 1861 by the Englishman A.W. Hansard, not only constituted the first English language newspaper in Japan, but was the first modern newspaper of any language in the country. On June 22 Hansard published the debut issue of his newspaper, which came out twice weekly on Wednesdays and Saturdays, at a price of $20 per year. He published only twenty-eight issues of it (the final one October 1) out of his offices at No. 31 Oura, before moving to Yokohama, where he established the Japan Herald in late November.
