The Illustrated Sporting and Dramatic, a magazine with a high photographic/image content, was founded in 1874 and published in London. A wonderful insight into farming, agricultural sciences, sports, hunting, etc., plus other activities of the day.

23 pages (46 sides). It measures 310 x 220 mm (12 x 8.5 "). There is a little age yellowing. Some of the pages may be loose, and have minor cuts tears and blemishes due to their age - anything more than minor will be mentioned in the main body of the description. The images/photos. vary in size. The images are in black and white unless otherwise stated. The four digit number in brackets in title is for my ref only. This is an original USED magazine not a scan and not a later re-print. This item will be packaged in a board backed envelope.

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 NO pages missing, so if you are looking for something in particular in this issue PLEASE ASK. 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 magazine were carried on from the previous issue and therefore do not start at number 1.

The descriptive text in my listing, details the content 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 printed text.
