Edward Burgess Hudson (1854 -1936) was the founder of Country Life magazine in 1897. This is an original USED vintage magazine not a scan and not a later re-print. If there is a particular date you require in regards to this item eg. for a birthday or anniversary etc please ask. The four digit number in brackets in title is for my ref only.

17 Pages (34 sides). It measures 355 x 235 mm (14x9.25inches). The spine has been reinforced/repaired. The pages are loose with binding witness marks. The pages are clean with a little age yellowing/spotting. Some of the pages have handling marks, blemishes due to their age - anything more than minor will be mentioned in the main body of the description. The images 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 pages missing, but everything listed above is present; 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).

The description of the contents above are in my own 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. This item will be packaged in a board backed envelope.
