The four digit number in brackets in title is for my ref only. It measures 365 x 260 mm (14.25 x 10.25 “).The spine is loose with binding witness marks where once bound, some pages are loose. There is some age yellowing with some spotting. Some of the pages may be 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. Quotation or speech marks in the text signifies 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. 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 are 2 pages 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 carry on from the previous issue and therefore do not start at number 1.

This item will be packaged in a tube unless otherwise requested.
