Edward Burgess Hudson (1854 -1936) was the founder of Country Life magazine in 1897. An original USED vintage magazine, not a scan and not a later re-print.

A heavy magazine weighing 790g. It measures 315 x 235 mm (12.25x9.25inches). There is a little age yellowing to the pages. Some of the pages may have slight handling marks, blemishes due to their age - the inside pages are in a good, clean condition. The images vary in size. PLEASE NOTE: I can't guarantee that the issue is complete 'as published' - but what I have described above IS present. As far as I can tell NO pages are missing, but if you're looking for something in particular in this issue PLEASE ASK. The process of the page numbering carries 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's written on the original page. "Info." in the content list above is my research, although relevant to the accompanying image or article, is not necessarily in the text. The four-digit number in brackets in title is for my ref only. This item will be sent Royal Mail Small Parcels.
