The four digit number in brackets in title is for my ref only. 12 pages (24 sides). It measures 395 x 285 mm (15.5 x 11.25inches). Some of the pages may be loose, and have 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 TWO pages missing, 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 Sporting and Dramatic 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 descriptive text in my listing, details the content in my 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.
