The Strand Magazine : An Illustrated Monthly - Vol XVI - July to December 1898
George Newnes, Ltd. London. 1898. Hardcover, with dust jacket. 804 pages (complete). A resolute copy. Bound upside down. The boards have a clear plastic protective cover (worn about the edges and spine). The boards also some wear - especially to the head and foot of the spine. They are secure and sure. Within, the guttering along the frontis and end papers are cracked. The security of the book is unaffected.

There is a story from H G Wells ("The Stolen Body"). The contents are placid, benign. The pages are clean, clear, occasionally marked from age, genial, companionable. fk. Good/No Jacket.
