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.

20 Pages (40 sides). It measures 360 x 235 mm (14x9.25inches). The spine has been repaired at some time and has a few small splits; there are binding witness marks to the inside page. The pages are very clean considering their great age. Looking at the contents page, the last lot of pages have been removed; looking at the number sequence this appears to have been a supplement. The images vary in size and are in b/w unless otherwise stated. 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 several pages missing, 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.

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.
