This is an original but USED newspaper not a scan and not a later re-print. A publication similar to The Illustrated London News, The Graphic was a weekly illustrated newspaper published by H. R. Baines and Company Ltd of Tallis House, Whitefriars, City of London.

Twelve pages (24 sides). It measures 400x300 mm (15.75 x 11.75inches).  There are binding witness marks to the spine.  There is a small repair to the front page border edge. Some of the pages are loose. There is some age yellowing and age marking. Some of the pages may 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. The engravings vary in size. There are no outer advertising pages/cover unless otherwise stated. The images are NOT in colour unless otherwise stated.

PLEASE NOTE: I cannot guarantee that the issue is complete 'as published' - but what I have described above IS present. As far as I can tell there are no pages, so if you are looking for something in particular in this issue PLEASE ASK. If you require information on size of articles (i.e. number of words), sizes of images, please ask before bidding or buying. The process of the page numbering in The Graphic issues carry on from the previous issue therefore do not start at number 1. This item will be packaged in a tube unless otherwise requested. The four digit number in brackets in title is for my ref only.

The descriptive text in my listing, details the content in my own words and not necessarily what is written on the original page.  Please be aware there maybe typo/ spelling errors etc. "Info." in the description is my research, although relevant to the accompanying image or article, is not necessarily in the text.
