The Illustrated London News was the world's first graphic newspaper. Published weekly from 1842, its engraved images of events and discoveries from around the world ensured its popularity. Since the time of publication, engravings from this publication have always been collected and hand-tinted with watercolour for framing.

To its border line the engraved image measures 35 x 24cm (13.75 x 9.5 inches). Page size is 41 x 29 cm (16 x 11 inches).
