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.

Approx. 28 pages (56 sides); weekly issue. It measures 365 x 260 mm (14.25 x 10.25). There is a little age yellowing. Some of the pages are loose, and have handling marks, blemishes due to their great age - anything more than minor will be mentioned in the main body of the description. The staples are rusty leaving witness marks. The images vary in size. There are no outer advertising pages/cover unless otherwise stated. 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. The process of the page numbering in The Illustrated London News would carry on from the previous issue therefore did not start at number 1.

Quotation or speech marks in the text signifies 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; sent RM small parcels. Please note that I dont make any profit on postage and packing; it is done at cost. The only profit made is by ebay as they take 10% on what I charge you for postage.
