The pictures give a very good overall sense of how the item survives.
Virtually all oversized periodicals of this era are scarce today as loose complete issues. Like most random survivals of large 19th century printing, any specific example (like this) is likely one of a handful still extant.
Text block remains overall clean, and displays a pleasing age patina.
Magazine remains well preserved and attractive on the shelf. It displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
Please review photos for more detail and our best attempt to convey how this antique item survives. This item is not new- it is old and has been handled by different owners in the past.
