    The first newspapers were written by hand and put up on the walls in public places. The earliest daily newspaper was started in Rome in 59 BC. (最早的报纸诞生于公元前59年的罗马)In the 700’s the world’s first printed newspaper was published. Europe didn’t have a regularly published newspaper until 1609, when one was started in Germany.
    The first regularly published newspaper in the English language was printed in Amsterdam in 1620. In 1621, an English newspaper was started in London and was published once a week. The first daily English newspaper was the Daily Courant(《每日新闻》). It came out in March 1720.
    In 1690, Benjamin Harris printed the first American newspaper in Boston. But not long after it was published, the government stopped the paper. In 1704, John Campbell started the Boston Newsletter(《波士顿新闻通讯》), the first newspaper published daily in America. There are now about 1,800 daily newspapers in the United States.
    Today, as a group, English language newspapers have the largest circulation(发行量) in the world. But the largest circulation for a newspaper is that of the Japanese newspaper Asahi Shimbun(《朝日新闻》). It sells more than eleven million copies every day.  (朝日新闻的日发行量世界第一,超过1100万份。)
