CONDITION/DIMENSIONS

This is an original USED newspaper not a scan and not a later re-print.

A publication similar to The Illustrated London News, The ILLUSTRATED SPORTING & DRAMATIC NEWS was a wonderful insight into theatre and stage, music hall, sport, hunting, and other activities of the day. Including critic columns on theatre, book etc .

It measures 365 x 260 mm (14.25 x 10.25 ").The spine is loose with binding witness marks, and the pages are loose. There is a little age yellowing. There is a hole in the back page (approx. 5x1.5") affecting some advertising only. 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 is one page 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 Graphic issues carry on from the previous issue therefore do not start at number 1. This item will be packaged in a tube. 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. Please be aware there maybe typo errors etc. "Info." in the description is my research, although relevant to the accompanying image or article, is not necessarily in the text.
