The four digit number in brackets in title is for my ref only. It measures 395 x 285 mm (15.5 x 11.25inches). It retains the outer cover, although this is a little grubby and worn. Some of the pages are loose, and have cuts tears and blemishes due to their great age; some of the corners are turned - anything more than minor will be mentioned in the main body of the description. The engravings vary in size. The images are NOT in colour unless otherwise stated.

If you require information on size of articles (i.e. number of words), sizes of images, please ask before bidding or buying. 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.

The descriptive text in my listing, details the content in my words and not necessarily what is written on the original page.
