The four digit number in brackets in title is for my ref only.

It measures 370 x 260mm (14.5 x 10 "). This copy retains its outer advertising cover and pages which are intact. There is a little age yellowing. The staples are rusty. The photos, sketches etc. vary in size. The images are in black and white unless otherwise stated. Some pages may have handling marks, minor tears and blemishes. The staples are rusty. The images are in black and white unless otherwise stated. This item will be packaged in a tube. 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.

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 these pages PLEASE ASK. If you require information on size of articles (i.e. number of words), sizes of images, please ask before bidding or buying. 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. P.S. Whilst I try to describe my newspapers and magazines as accurately as possible, these descriptions don't just jump out of the pages onto my computer, I have to describe them, usually in my own words, and type them into a document which is very time consuming; so please be prepared for a few typos etc! smiley emoticon.
