    Sheet from The Illustrated London News, two pages, 10.25" x 15.25", January 4, 1845. The Illustrated London News was founded on May 14, 1842, by Herbert Ingram and Mark Lemon, editor of the magazine Punch. Each weekly issue consisted of 16 pages and 32 woodcuts. The publication still exists today as the Illustrated London News Group. This two-page sheet consists of page 3, which includes an article on Texas independence and statehood, and page 4 (verso), including three etchings: "Review of Texan Troops," "Port of Galvaston," and "City of Houston-The Capital of Texas." The sheet was sold separately from the full issue (which sold for sixpence), as is evidenced by the one-penny newspaper stamp in the bottom left corner of page 4. Fine condition.
