The four digit number in brackets in title is for my ref only.

It measures 370 x 260 mm (14.5 x 10 " ). There is a little age yellowing. The spine and pages are loose with binding witness marks. Some of the double paged photographs, sketches, diagrams etc are detached on the centre fold of the paper therefore the images are detached down centre. There is no red advertising cover. There are a few small tears to border edge. The photos, sketches etc. 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 is ONE page missing but if you are looking for something in particular in this issue PLEASE ASK. .

This item will be packaged in a tube unless otherwise requested.

PLEASE ALSO NOTE That the banners, or mastheads vary, and the scan shown is only a representative sample.

Info. in the description is my research, although relevant to the accompanying image or article, not necessarily in the text.
