An original used issue, not printed on the best of quality paper, but it more than makes up for this in terms of written content with many images.

The four digit number in brackets in title is for my ref only. It measures 285mmx220mm (11.25 x 8.5 inches) approx. There is age yellowing and spotting/foxing and some marking. The spine has been reinforced/repaired at some time.There are binding witness marks to inside pages. The outer advertising cover has been removed, but the front page is intact. The photos, sketches etc. vary in size.

PLEASE NOTE: I cannot guarantee that the issue is complete 'as published' - but what I have described above IS present. The outer cover is missing; but as far as I can tell there are no other pages missing. If you're 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 these publications carry on from the previous issue and therefore do not start at number 1. This item will be packaged in a board backed envelope. 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 text.
