Motoring Page.

The four digit number in brackets in title is for my ref only. It measures 360 x 235 mm (14 x 9.25 inches ). Although the front cover is marked and grubby, the rest of the pages through-out are reasonably clean. There is no outer cover, but the main inner front page is present. This issue has had the Property For Sale Supplement, advertising pages, and other pages removed. The spine is loose and has been repaired/reinforced at some time with like paper. There are a some small repairs to small tears on edges of pages. The pages are loose with binding marks through-out. There is a little age yellowing. The original advertising cover and supplement pages have been removed, approx five pages. 

The images are in b& w unless otherwise stated. Some of the pages may 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. This item will be packaged in a tube unless otherwise requested.
