New section of Illustrated London News - will have more added soon.

The Illustrated London News was the world's first illustrated weekly news magazine; its inaugural issue appeared on Saturday, 14 May 1842. The magazine was published weekly until 1971, and less frequently thereafter. Publication ceased in 2003.

Each copy is packed with many hundreds of news items, engravings, advertisements and editorial comments and below I have picked out the majority of illustrations, each of which is linked to an article. I have also added a few choice morsels from the wide range of other topics covered.

Each magazine is complete and as sold as a weekly newspaper in 1849.

These copies are clean and in good condition but are over 165 years old so allowance must be made for a little handling wear. Images are a guide but tend to exaggerate any blemishes and may make white paper look shaded. I endeavour to mention any serious problems like tears or off-setting.
