There is some age yellowing with some spotting. Some pages may have minor cuts tears and blemishes due to their great age. The engravings vary in size. There are no outer advertising pages/cover unless otherwise stated. The images are in black and white unless otherwise stated. Quotation or speech marks in the text signifies the content in my words and not necessarily what is written on the original page."Info." in the description is my research, although relevant to the accompanying image or article, is not necessarily in the text.

PLEASE NOTE: I cannot guarantee that the issue is complete 'as published' - but what I have described above IS present.
