The Illustrated Times was a magazine founded as a competitor to the Illustrated London News, but it never really gained a lot of popularity, so these newspapers are quite rare. This is an original but USED magazine/newspaper not a scan and not a later re-print.

Seven pages (14 sides). It measures 365 x 260 mm (14.25 x 10.25 inches).The spine has been reinforced/repaired at some time; there are binding witness marks where once bound, and some pages are loose. There is a tear to front page which has been isolated with a piece of like paper; the tear is very hard to spot on the scan; and the same to back page. There is some age yellowing with some spotting. Some pages may have minor cuts tears and blemishes due to their great age; but remain relatively clean for the age. The engravings vary in size. 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 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 Times carried on from the previous issue therefore do not start at number 1. This item will be packaged in a tube to be sent RM Small Parcels.

The descriptive text in my listing, details the content in my words and not necessarily what is written on the original page. Please be aware there maybe typo errors etc. "Info." in the description is my research, although relevant to the accompanying image or article, is not necessarily in the text.
