Two extremely scarce issues of, 'The Shanghai Weekly Times - Journal of Commerce and Shipping', Vol. I No. 2 (Saturday, October 12, 1861) and Vol I. No. 11 (Saturday, December 14, 1861) along with one issue of, 'The North-China & Japan Market Report' No.110 for October 5, 1861 (printed at the North-China Herald Office, Shanghai) . The Shangai Weekly Times was  published for less than one year between 1861 and 1862. According to, 'A Research Guide to China-Coast Newspapers, 1822–1911' (edited by Frank H. H. King, Prescott Clarke. 1965), 'No copies of this short-lived newspaper have been located.' (p.81). The newspaper was published by W. Wynter & Co. but apparently closed when Wynter left Shanghai in 1862 in debt.
