The Illustrated Times was a magazine founded as a competitor to the Illustrated London News, but never really gained a lot of popularity, and are consequently quite rare. This is an original USED 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 is loose with binding witness marks where once bound, some pages are loose. There is some age yellowing with some spotting. Some pages may have minor cuts tears and blemishes due to their great age. The engravings vary in size. There are no outer advertising pages/cover unless otherwise stated.The images are in black and white unless otherwise stated.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 London News issues carried on from the previous issue therefore do not start at number 1. This item will be packaged in a tube unless otherwise requested. "Info." in the description is my research, although relevant to the accompanying image or article, is not necessarily in the text.The description of the content in my words and not necessarily what is written on the original page.
