A very descriptive publication, printed on a light quality paper priced 6d. - A cheaper option to some of the more popular illustrated magazines of the day, such as Illustrated London News etc. but more down to earth and detailed.

Twelve pages (24 sides). It measures 285mmx220mm (11.25 x 8.5 inches) approx. This magazine is an original and 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. There is age yellowing and spotting/foxing and some marking. There are binding witness marks to the spine. The outer advertising cover has been removed, but the front page is intact. The photos, sketches etc. vary in size. This item will be packaged in a board backed envelope.

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 pages missing (apart from outer cover), so 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 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. The four digit number in brackets in title is for my ref only.
