Abstract:
This document is an official copy of the royal licence granted to Police Prosecutor Ole Brose to establish an Advertising Office and Advertising Newspaper in the city of Bergen, Norway. Similar privileges were granted in three other Norwegian cities in that decade, which shows how the state sought to stimulate economic development with a printed newspaper as the main disseminator of relevant information. By granting Brose a royal licence to print personally, the state revealed its reliance on a trusted official as the legal owner of such information.
