The NMM Archive and Library is pleased to announce the acquistion of the full archive of ‘The Illustrated London News Historical Archive’, from 1842-2003.
With its debut in 1842 the Illustrated London News became the world’s first illustrated weekly newspaper, sparking a revolution in journalism and news reporting. The publication presented a vivid picture of British and world events – including news of war, disasters, royalty, social affairs, the arts and science. Containing over 260,000 full colour pages, fully searchable and browseable, the ILN Historical Archive 1842-2003 provides users with unprecedented access to the entire run of this unique historical record.
The 30-day trial period to this resource proved so successful that we purchased the entire archive and we hope that you will enjoy it as much as we did!
