The four digit number in brackets in title is for my ref only.

It measures 360 x 235 mm (14 x 9.25 inches ). The titled, dated, priced frontispiece page is present and features the usual photograph of a young woman, popularly known as the "Girls in Pearls" series. The outer cover, advertising, and other supplement pages have been removed, approx five pages. The spine is loose and has been repaired/reinforced at some time with a paper strip. The pages are loose with binding marks through-out. There is a little age yellowing.

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.

PLEASE NOTE: I cannot guarantee that the issue is complete 'as published' - but what I have described above IS present. There are pages missing as described above but everything listed above is present, but if you are 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 the Country Life issues are applied in a yearly sequence and therefore do not start at number 1.

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. - P.S. Whilst I try to describe my newspapers and magazines as accurately as possible, these descriptions don't just jump out of the pages onto my computer, I have to describe them, usually in my own words, and type them into a document which is very time consuming; so please be prepared for a few typos etc! smiley emoticon.
