The four digit number in brackets in title is for my ref only. It measures 315 x 232 mm (12.25x9.25inches). 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. 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. There may be a few adverts missing but I can't be certain either way. The process of the page numbering carry on from the previous issue, therefore do not start at number 1.
