Edward Burgess Hudson (1854 -1936) was the founder of Country Life magazine in 1897. This is an original USED vintage magazine not a scan and not a later re-print.
Approx Fifty-two pages (104 sides). It measures 315 x 235 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. 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. The four digit number in brackets in title is for my ref only.
