The Illustrated London News was a newspaper founded by Herbert Ingram with the first edition appearing on 14 May 1842.

The four digit number in brackets in title is for my ref only. It measures 365 x 260 mm (14.25 x 10.25 ").The spine is loose with binding witness marks where once bound, some pages are loose. There are one inch tears either side on the borders mainly of the front page, following through onto the other pages - the issue has probably been folded at one point. The back page (sheet music) has a piece missing at the bottom of the page. There is a little age yellowing with some spotting. Some pages may have minor cuts tears and blemishes due to their great age. The engravings are small, varying in size. There are no outer advertising pages/cover unless otherwise stated; no colour images unless stated.

Quotation or speech marks in the text signifies the content in my words and not necessarily what is written on the original page. "Info." in the description is my research, although relevant to the accompanying image or article, is not necessarily in the text.

PLEASE NOTE: I cannot guarantee that the issue is complete 'as published' - but what I have described above IS present. As far as I can tell there is possibly one page missing so if you are looking for something in particular in these pages PLEASE ASK. The process of the page numbering in The Illustrated London News issues are applied in a yearly sequence and therefore do not start at number 1. This item will be packaged in a tube.
