It measures 365x235mm (14.25 x 9.25inches ). The titled, priced and dated frontispiece page is present; but the outer cover, advertising, and other articles/supplement pages have been removed as it was bound without the exterior cover or end-pages/adverts. The spine has been repaired/reinforced at some time (see scan). The inner pages are loose with binding marks through-out. There is a little age yellowing, and staining to top border of some pages; but this apart, the pages are clean. The images vary in size and are in b/w unless otherwise stated. PLEASE NOTE: There are pages missing; but what I have described above IS present - 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 tube and sent RM small parcels (too big for lge. letter).
