Description: A predecessor of the Eidgenössische Zeitung, the Beobachter aus der östlichen Schweiz was published by Christian Beyel (1808-1858) in Frauenfeld from 1838. After taking over the company "Wirz-Widmersche Buchhandlung und Verlag " in Zurich, Beyel published the title from November 1838 in parallel also in Zurich, until from March 1843 it was printed there by Johann Jakob Ulrich (1769-1840) in the Berichthaus. The Beobachter ceased publication at the end of 1844 and in the last issue it was announced that from 1 January 1845, the Eidgenössische Zeitung would be published by Friedrich Schulthess (1804-1869) in Zurich as a continuation with the same liberal-conservative orientation, but now with a pan-Swiss perspective.
