The Sketch was a British illustrated weekly newspaper with a high photographic/image content (engravings in earlier issues), published between February 1893 and June 1959, by the Illustrated London News Company. It was primarily a Victorian society magazine with regular features on royalty and the aristocracy, theatre, sports and arts.

26 pages (52 sides). It measures 360 x 250 mm (14.25 x 9.75 "). The orig. advertising wrap/cover is missing. The front page (frontispiece) is present but is loose and tucked inside the other pages. The spine is loose with binding witness marks where once bound. There is some age yellowing with some spotting. Some of the pages have minor cuts tears and blemishes due to their great age - anything. The engravings vary in size. The images are in black and white unless otherwise stated. There are no outer advertising pages/cover 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 NO other pages missing, but 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 therefore do not start at number 1.

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. This item will be packaged in a tube. The four digit number in brackets in title is for my ref only.
