There is related text on the reverse, which has five small repaired tears to the borders. I also have another listing on this subject, a full page with a portrait of Mr Bradlaugh, Mr Molesworth (Helston), Mr Howard (Bedfordshire) and Mr Stanton (Stroud), this other page carries more of the story.

Provenance: From the Illustrated London News; Published 1863. The Illustrated London News was a newspaper founded by Herbert Ingram and Mark Lemon, the Editor of Punch, with the first edition of the Illustrated London News appearing on 14 May 1842. At this time the ILN employed many artists, illustrators and engravers to reproduce images of the news of the day. This was the only way of producing news pictures at this time, even photographs had to be reproduced using an engraved process. They also employed the services of freelance artists and engravers like Gustave Dore, John Gilbert and many others.
