INGRAM BROTHERS (PRINTERS AND PUBLISHERS)
The Illustrated London News. No. 2405. Vol. LXXXVI. Saturday, May 23, 1885.
(London: Ingram Brothers, 1885). . 400 x 280 mm; magazine, disbound from volume LXXXVI, without wraps (as issued), and contained within a film fronted bag; pp. [523-546]; several woodcuts. Light browning; some soiling, fingering and rippling throughout; stitching loose; a few tears, the more significant of which are repaired with archival tape. The front page illustration features 'The Rebellion in the North-West Territory of Canada: Captain French (since killed) taking three Indian spies prisoners.' There are further pictures relating to the 1885 Northwest Rebellion, including a two-page spread captioned 'The Rebellion in the North-West Territory of Canada: Colonial troops marching over the ice of Nepigon Bay, Lake Superior.' Editorial comment in this issue reflects the jingoistic spirit of the times, and a racism that 'plays the man, rather than the ball': "It is satisfactory news that Louis Riel, the conceited and fanatical mongrel Canadian, who got up the Red River insurrection of 1870, and has again stirred up a rebellion among the half-breeds and some of the Indian tribes on the North Saskatchewan, is now a prisoner, and there are strong hopes of a speedy pacification.".

Concerning Caprivi it is said: "He is undoubtedly a man of great administrative ability; but whether or not he possesses the talents of a diplomatist or the sagacity of a statesman remains to be proved.".

INGRAM BROTHERS (PRINTERS AND PUBLISHERS)
The Illustrated London News. No. 2650. Vol. XCVI. Saturday, February 1, 1890.
(London: Ingram Brothers, 1890). . 400 x 296 mm; magazine, disbound from volume XCVI, and contained within a film fronted bag; wrappers discarded; pp. [129-160]; several woodcuts and advertisements; some photographs. Some moderate foxing, which is somewhat more pronounced to margin of front page; stitching loose. Highlights include the front page illustration, 'Return of Mr. Stanley's Expedition: Presentation of the Order of Zanzibar', with accompanying news and pictures of the Emin Pasha Relief Expedition, and the remarkable two-page supplementary view, 'Ruwenzori, or "The Mountains of the Moon," in Central Africa, discovered by Mr. H. M. Stanley's Expedition.' Concerning 'Mr. Stanley's Latest African Discoveries', the journal reports: 'The geographical discoveries made by Mr. H. M. Stanley's expedition in its route, accompanied by Emin Pasha, to the south of of Lake Albert Nyanza, and west of Victoria Nyanza, through a region previously unexplored, are the latest addition to our knowledge of the wonderful interior of what has been called the "Dark Continent." They are of much scientific interest, apparently solving the question of the true source of the Upper White Nile, or rather of its western branch flowing through the Albert Nyanza - the eastern branch coming from the Victoria Nyanza - while they reveal also the position of the southern lake, hitherto vaguely spoken of as the "Muta Nzige," but henceforth named Lake Albert Edward Nyanza, in honour of the Prince of Wales.' Britain's territorial dispute with Portugal in Mozambique being of current interest, there are also sketches of Delagoa Bay life, with commentary on the Portuguese colonial authorities' failure to develop the area surrounding their port, or to treat the natives humanely..

INGRAM BROTHERS (PRINTERS AND PUBLISHERS)
The Illustrated London News. No. 2656. Vol. XCVI. Saturday, March 15, 1890.
(London: Ingram Brothers, 1890). . 400 x 296 mm; magazine, disbound from volume XCVI, and contained within a film fronted bag; wrappers discarded; pp. [321-352]; several woodcuts and advertisements, and with the double-page supplementary portrait of inventor Thomas Alva Edison. Some moderate foxing; stitching loose; occasional light fingering. The Edison portrait is in excellent condition. The inspiring biography of Thomas Alva Edison accompanies his portrait. In comparison with his 'hundreds of other devices, all of them of sufficient merit to make famous their author', the phonograph is considered to be the invention to which Edison 'owes his wide popularity, inasmuch as the dream of philosophers of all ages - and who does not remember Byron's remark when looking at the portrait of this mother, "Only the voice is wanting"? - was accomplished, the recording and reproduction in a simple way of human speech. Certainly Edison dropped his phonograph to proceed with the electric light and other important inventions more appropriate to the immediate requirements of the time, but he said, "The phonograph is my baby, and it is going to support me in my old age."'.

The Illustrated London News. No. 2667. Vol. XCVI. Saturday, May 31, 1890.
(London: Ingram Brothers, 1890). . 395 x 295 mm; magazine, disbound from volume XCVI, without wrappers; pp. [673-704]; several woodcuts. Occasional fox spots. PLEASE NOTE: The two coloured supplementary pictures of the Derby are missing. An interesting picture, occupying half a page, shows Kori bustards, recently acquired for the Zoological Gardens in London. This creature is described as being "of grand size, but rarely seen except in places remote from human habitations. The Otis Kori, found on the banks of the Gariep or Orange River, is four feet high, or even bigger, and has long wings, but seldom cares to fly, running with great swiftness, and using its wings to assist its course in running: it will, however, occasionally rise and skim along just above the ground. Its body is very bulky and heavy, abounding in fat, and the flesh of this bird is much esteemed as meat, its flavour being like that of a turkey. The natives of Africa are acustomed to catch the bustard in snares. They say that a single bustard is usually to be seen accompanying a herd of gazelles.".
