The Sketch was a British illustrated weekly magazine, published between February 1893 and June 1959, by the Illustrated London News Company and was primarily a society magazine with regular features on royalty and the aristocracy, theatre, cinema and arts, with a high photographic content.

27 pages (53 sides).It measures 350 x 250 mm (13.5 x 9.75 inches).The spine is loose with binding witness marks where once bound, some pages are loose. There is some age yellowing with some spotting. Some pages may have minor cuts tears and blemishes due to their great age. The images vary in size. There are no outer advertising pages/cover unless otherwise stated. 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.

Quotation or speech marks in the text signifies 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 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 2 pages missing so if you are looking for something in particular in these pages PLEASE ASK. The process of the page numbering in The Sketch followed on from the previous issue and therefore did not start at number 1.
