The Illustrated Times was a newspaper founded as a competitor to the Illustrated London News, but never really gained a lot of popularity; these issues are now consequently quite rare.

The spine is loose with binding witness marks where once bound, some pages are loose. There is some age yellowing with some spotting. The bottom left corner of all the pages is damp damaged but not affecting the engravings or articles. The outer front and back page spine has a tear up the middle. 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. No colour images unless otherwise stated.
