It retains the outer advertising cover, although it is detached down centre spine; it is tatty with a tear to back outer page. Some of the pages may be loose, and have cuts tears and blemishes due to their great age - anything more than minor will be mentioned in the main body of the description. The engravings vary in size.

PLEASE NOTE: I cannot guarantee that the issue is complete 'as published' - but what I have described above IS present. As far as I can tell there are no other pages missing (as well those stated above), so if you are looking for something in particular in this issue PLEASE ASK.

The process of the page numbering in The Graphic issues carry on from the previous issue therefore do not start at number 1. This item will be packaged in a tube unless otherwise requested.
