The four digit number in brackets in title is for my ref only. It measures 365 x 260 mm (14.25 x 10.25 “). It retains it's outer advertising cover. There is some age yellowing with some spotting. The staples are rusty. Some of the pages have  blemishes due to their great age - anything more than minor will be mentioned in the main body of the description. The images vary in size. This item will be packaged in a tube.
