The Times is a daily British national newspaper based in London which began publication in 1785 under the title 'The Daily Universal Register', adopting its current name on 1 January 1788 (wikipedia). It is the first newspaper to have borne the name The Times, something which has been repeated by numerous other newspapers such as the Times of India and the New York Times. It is often referred to as the London Times or the Times of London. The Times is the originator of the widely used Times New Roman typeface, originally developed by Stanley Morison of The Times in collaboration with the Monotype Corporation for its legibility in low-tech printing (wikipedia).
