  1. Hi, Looking for illustrations created by William Pears Nicholes for the Illusrated London News from about 1900. Oral history mentions the Boer War.

      Access to this resource is available to researchers when they visit the Vaughan Evans Library.

      It’s also available to you from home as part of the electronic resources offered to patrons by State Libraries around Australia. To access this all you need to do is apply for a Library card from them if you don’t have one already. The State Library of NSW have an ” access from home” page on their website http://www.sl.nsw.gov.au

      Unfortunately the artists names aren’t indexed so browsing through each issue for the period of the Boer War 1899-1902 may be your best bet.

      Kind regards

  2. I have a 2 book collection of the 1899 Illustrated London News. It contains every weekly edition for the year. There are hundreds of engravings, photos etc. and amazing vintage/antique advertisements for Players cigarettes, Fry’s, Cadbury, Pears, etc. Do you know where I might have this evaluated or if it is something worth having restored? Content is 95% but the bindings are in a sad state. Thank You
