Approx 32 pages (64 sides). It measures 330 x 240mm (13 x 9.5"). There is a little age yellowing. Some of the pages maybe loose, and have handling marks, 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 and are in b/w unless otherwise stated. PLEASE NOTE: I cannot guarantee that the issue is complete 'as published' - but what I have described above IS present.

The process of the page numbering carry on from the previous issue, therefore do not start at number 1. The four digit number in brackets in title is for my ref only.
