This is an original but USED antique newspaper not a scan and not a later re-print. If there is a particular date you require in regards to this item eg. for a birthday or anniversary etc please ask. The Illustrated London News was a magazine founded by Herbert Ingram with the first edition appearing on 14 May 1842.

The four digit number in brackets in title is for my reference only.It measures 400 x 290 mm (15.75 x 11.25). It retains the outer advertising cover but this is parted down the fold and detached from the paper and a little tatty (I have put the two pages inside the paper). There is a little age yellowing to the inside pages; but these are reasonably clean with some handling marks to edges. The images are in black and white unless otherwise stated. The staples are intact. The images vary in size. This item will be packaged in a tube unless otherwise requested.

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, 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.
