The four digit number in brackets in title is for my ref only. It measures 345 x 235 mm (13.5 x 9.25 " ). The rusty staples have been removed and the pages are loose throughout. The pages are quite clean inside although they have been subject to some damp at some time and the outer cover and some pages feel a little chalky. The outer cover is a little scuffed. The images 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 are no pages missing, but if you are looking for something in particular in this issue PLEASE ASK. The process of the page numbering carry on from the previous issue, therefore do not start at number 1.

The description of the contents above are 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 text. This item will be packaged in a board backed envelope.
