The Illustrated Times was a newspaper founded as a competitor to the Illustrated London News; it never really gained as much popularity, as a result making the newspaper quite rare.

Seven pages (14 sides). It measures 365 x 260 mm (14.25 x 10.25 inches).The spine is loose with binding witness marks where once bound; the back page is detached (I have placed it within the newspaper). There is age yellowing with some spotting consistent with the age. Some pages may have minor cuts tears and blemishes due to their great 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're 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. The descriptive text in my 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.
