The Illustrated London News was a magazine founded by Herbert Ingram with the first edition of the Illustrated London News appearing on 14 May 1842. The four digit number in brackets in title is for my ref only.

Twelve pages (24 sides). It measures 365 x 260 mm (14.25 x 10.25 ").The spine is loose with binding witness marks, 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. 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 no pages missing so if you are looking for something in particular in these pages PLEASE ASK. 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.
