The Sketch was a British illustrated weekly newspaper with a high photographic content, 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.

Twenty pages (40 sides). It measures 360 x 250 mm (14.25 x 9.75 "). The orig. red outlined advertising wrap/cover is missing. The front page (frontispiece) is intact. There are binding witness marks to the spine where once bound. 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 and images vary in size. The images are in black and white unless otherwise stated. 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. "Info." in the description is my research, although relevant to the accompanying image or article, is not necessarily in the printed text. I can't 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 therefore do not start at number 1.
