The four digit number in brackets in title is for my ref only. It measures 400 x 300 mm (16 x 11.75 “). - The spine and pages are loose with binding witness marks. There is some age yellowing with some spotting. Some of the pages may be 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. There are no outer advertising pages/cover unless otherwise stated. The engravings 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 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 Graphic carry on from the previous weeks issu and therefore do not start at number 1. Quotation or speech marks in the text signifies the content in my words and not necessarily what is written on the original page.
