Please note that issue 2817 for Friday, 4th September is absent. Each issue is is bound in paper covers of pale terracotta with masthead and advertisements on the front, with a further advert on the rear.
The interior is a mixture of articles and advertisements, the magazine was designed for the trade rather than the amateur reader.
Although the pages and paper covers are somewhat soiled and/or age-toned, which is to be expected in a publication this old, all text is legible, diagrams and illustrations are clear and the numerous advertisements possess their own eccentric charm. Among the contents, for example, are such diverse pieces as "The Design of Pigsties", an advertisement for "Prepared Coffin Sets", price charts suggesting an average of 48s/6d per ton of Grey Stone Lime and an interesting article on the designs of Corbusier.
A heavy bundle which necessitates courier delivery, however a fascinating, unique window into a bygone age.
In better than good condition, near very good.
