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 outer cover is grubb with some wear; but the inside pages are clean. There are some issues where the coating on the smooth paper as it breaks down, leaving a powdery feel to some of the pages. The images vary in size and are in b/w unless otherwise stated.

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.
