Twelve pages (24 sides). It measures 400 x 275 mm (16 x 10.75 " ). There is a little age yellowing with some spotting. The spine and some pages are loose with binding witness marks. 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. The engravings vary in size. Please email for more information if required. This item was specially printed on thinner paper for sending overseas; the front page bears a note to that effect. The front page also calls for a large print of the Tuileries - which is NOT present (although the article is). As far as I can tell there are two other pages missing, but everything described above is present; however if you are looking for something in particular in these pages 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 four digit number in brackets in title is for my ref only. 

The descriptive text in my listing, details 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. This item will be packaged in a tube.
