The four digit number in brackets in title is for my ref only. It measures 400 x 260 mm (15.75 x 10.25 inches). 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 some of the double page images are detached down centre, SEE *. There is no red advertising cover. There is some age yellowing with some spotting. There are crackle type marks to some of the pages. Some of the pages may be loose, and have minor cuts tears and blemishes due to their great age. The images vary in size. Quotation or speech marks in the text signifies the content in my words and not necessarily what is written on the original page.
