Notes From a Travellers Log Book by edward E. Long: India for a Winter Holiday.sleekburnc. 1012

This is an original but USED vintage 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 of the Illustrated London News appearing on 14 May 1842. The four digit number in brackets in title is for my ref only.

19 pages (38 sides). It measures 358 x 250 mm (14 x 10inches). There is a little age yellowing. Some of the pages are loose, and have handling marks, blemishes due to their great age; spine has binding witness marks - anything more than minor will be mentioned in the main body of the description. The images vary in size. There is no outer advertising cover. 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 this issue PLEASE ASK. The process of the page numbering in The Illustrated London News carry on from the previous weeks issue and therefore do not start at number 1. Sometimes the newspaper would have supplements which were numbered specially (eg. roman numerals or such like).

The detailed description above lists the content in my words and not necessarily what is written on the original page. "Info." in the description refers to my research, although relevant to the accompanying image or article, is not necessarily in the text. This item will be packaged in a tube unless otherwise requested. Postage and packing is charged at cost.
