The four digit number in brackets in title is for my ref only. It measures 355 x 235 mm (14x9.25inches). The spine has been reinforced/repaired with brown binding paper or such like (se pics). The pages inside have binding witness marks and some are loose. The pages are generally clean with only a few handling marks. The images vary in size and are in b/w unless otherwise stated. The end supplement pages are missing. 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 pages missing (end supplement), so if you are looking for something in particular in this issue PLEASE ASK. The process of the page numbering carry on from the previous issue, therefore do not start at number 1. Sometimes the magazine would have supplements which were numbered specially (eg. roman numerals or such like).
