The images are in black and white unless otherwise stated. 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.

As far as I can tell there are no pages missing, but if you are looking for something in particular in this issue PLEASE ASK.
