This is an original but USED antique newspaper not a scan and not a later re-print. The Illustrated London News was a newspaper founded by Herbert Ingram with the first edition appearing on 14 May 1842. It was the world's first illustrated weekly newspaper.

16 pages (32 sides). It measures 395 x 290 mm (15.5 x 11.25inches). The spine is loose with binding witness marks where once bound, there is age yellowing to the pages. The musical supplement is apart from the main paper. There are no colour images unless otherwise stated. Some of the pages are loose, and have minor cuts tears and blemishes due to their great age - anything more than minor will be mentioned in the main body of the description. The engravings vary in size. Any watermarks on images are for display only and not on the original engravings/newspaper. This item will be packaged in a tube.

PLEASE NOTE: I cannot guarantee that the issue is complete as published - but what I have described above IS present; although the pages have not been bound in numerical order, as far as I can tell there are no pages missing. If you are looking for something in particular in this issue PLEASE ASK. If you require information on size of articles (i.e. number of words), sizes of images, please ask before bidding or buying. There are no colour images unless otherwise stated. The process of the page numbering in the ILN carry on from the previous issue therefore do not start at number 1. The four digit number in brackets in title is for my reference only.

The descriptive text in this listing, details 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. This item will be packaged in a tube.
