The four digit number in brackets in title is for my ref only. It measures 350 x 258 mm (13.75 x 10 inches). It retains the outer advertising cover. There are binding witness marks to the spine. Some of the pages may be loose, and handling marks due to the age - anything more than minor will be mentioned in the main body of the description. The photographs vary in size. The images are in black and white unless otherwise stated. This item will be packaged in a tube unless otherwise requested.

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. 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 Sphere issues are applied in a yearly sequence and therefore do not start at number 1.
