Illustrated London News
About the Illustrated London News The first issue of the Illustrated London News was published on Saturday, May 14, 1842. This weekly newspaper distinguished itself from its predecessors by offering readers a combination of news with images. Founded by Herbert Ingram, Ingram used his experience from his time as an apprentice, journeyman printer, and news vendor and printing office owner to create the popular newspaper. After Ingram and his eldest son died in a steamer accident on the way to America on September 8, 1860, Ingram's wife, Anne, assumed management of the newspaper until her sons, William and Charles, were old enough to take over. Although it was the addition of regular illustrations that made this newspaper unique, the writers and their news stories were significant. "Readers were treated to full write-ups of political news, as well as editorials ('leaders') on topics of the day, and detailed descriptions of pageants, battles, buildings, inventions, archaeological discoveries, disasters, elections, and much else (Leary)." In 1900, Ingram's grandson, Bruce Ingram, took over editorship of the newspaper. Under his editorship, the newspaper covered momentous events such as the two World Wars, the sinking of the Titanic, and the opening of King Tutankhamen's tomb. Publication of the Illustrated London News ceased in 2003. About this collection MU Libraries holds an extensive collection of bound copies of the Illustrated London News. Presently, only one bound volume has been digitized. Work on this project will continue as time permits. Additional volumes of the newspaper can be found in the HathiTrust Digital Library: Leary, Patrick. "A brief history of the Illustrated London News."

Paisa Akhbar
The Paisa Akhbar (Penny Paper) was a popular Urdu newspaper published in Lahore, British India. Lahore is now located in Pakistan. The paper was established in 1887 by Maulana Muhammad Hussain Azad and Nisar Ali Shohrat. These dailies published news stories and editorials aimed at a general readership and supported nationalistic causes. This collection includes dailies from 1891, 1892, 1894, and 1898 bound into four incomplete volumes. The tight binding of these volumes resulted in some unreadable text, page curvature, and crooked pages.
Began with volume I, number 1, June 4, 1859. Last issue in hand: volume V, number 10, August 10, 1861.
