This is an original but USED antique newspaper not a scan and not a later re-print. The Illustrated London News was a newspaper founded by Herbert Ingram with the first edition appearing on 14 May 1842. It was the world's first illustrated weekly newspaper

Twelve pages (24 sides) It measures 395 x 290 mm (15.5 x 11.25). The spine is loose with binding witness marks where once bound, there is age yellowing to the pages. The images are in black and white unless otherwise stated. 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. This item will be packaged in a tube unless otherwise requested. The four digit number in brackets in title is for my reference only.

PLEASE NOTE: The issue is NOT complete 'as published' - but what I have described above IS present. As far as I can tell there are no pages missing, but if you are 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. There are no colour images unless otherwise stated. The process of the page numbering in The ILN carry on from the previous issue therefore do not start at number 1.

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. This item will be packaged in a tube.
