It measures 365 x 260 mm (14.25 x 10.25). There is a little age yellowing. Some of the pages are loose, and have handling marks, blemishes due to their great age - anything more than minor will be mentioned in the main body of the description. The images vary in size.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 2 pages missing, but if you are looking for something in particular in this issue PLEASE ASK. The process of the page numbering in the ILN run on from previous issues and therefore do not start at number 1.
