The front page is intact. The spine is loose with binding witness marks where once bound. There is some age yellowing with some spotting. 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. The images are in black and white unless otherwise stated. This item will be packaged in a tube.

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 printed text.  

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 Sketch carry on from the previous issue and so dont start with number 1. The four digit number in brackets in title is for my ref only.
