It measures 395 x 285 mm (15.5 x 11.25inches).There is no outer advertising cover. There are binding witness marks to the spine. The pages are loose with binding witness marks. Some of the pages 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. The images/drawings vary in size. There are no outer advertising pages/cover unless otherwise stated. The images are NOT in colour unless otherwise stated.

PLEASE NOTE: I cannot guarantee that the issue is complete 'as published' - but what I have described above IS present.
