A wonderful insight into theatre, stage, royalty, society, sport, fashion and many other activities of the day a journal of art and actuality. The Sketch was a British illustrated weekly newspaper, published between February 1893 and June 1959, by the Illustrated London News Company and was primarily a society magazine with regular features on Royalty and the aristocracy, theatre, cinema and arts, with a high photographic content.

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.

22 pages (44 sides). It measures 295 x 220 mm (11.5 x 8.5 "). There are binding witness marks on the spine. 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. There are no outer advertising pages/cover unless otherwise stated. This item will be packaged in a board backed envelope. Wt. 200g.

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.

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 Sketch are carried on from the previous issue and therefore do not start at number 1.
