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.
