The front page has handling marks with crease/tear to bottom half (see scan). The images are in black and white unless otherwise stated. Some of the pages are loose, and have minor cuts tears and blemishes due to their great age - anything more than minor will be mentioned in the main body of the description.

If you require information on size of articles (i.e. number of words), sizes of images, please ask before bidding or buying. There are no colour images unless otherwise stated. The process of the page numbering in The ILN carry on from the previous issue therefore do not start at number 1. The four digit number in brackets in title is for my reference only.
