There is some age yellowing with some spotting. Some pages may have minor cuts tears and blemishes due to their great age. The images vary in size. There are no outer advertising pages/cover unless otherwise stated.The images are in black and white unless otherwise stated. Quotation or speech marks in the text signifies the content in my words and not necessarily what is written on the original page

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. The process of the page numbering in The Illustrated London News issues are applied in a yearly sequence and therefore do not start at number 1.
