Featuring The Economist masthead for the first issue of The Economist published in 1843.

“If we make ourselves too little for the sphere of our duty; if on the contrary, we do not stretch and expand our minds to the compass of their object; be well assured that everything about us will dwindle by degrees, until at length our concerns are shrunk to the dimensions of our minds. It is not a predilection to mean, sordic, home-bred eares that will avert the consequences of a false estimation of our estimation of our interest; or prevent the shameful dilapidation into which a great empire must fall by mean reparation upon mighty ruins.” BURKE
