Hello, Helena.
I thought you were advertising copies of a book by Sims, but perhaps you mean copies of his articles? I get the impression they are all partial, or is that another misconception?

Maybe I'll look online at the link provided in the first post on this thread, and see if I can find out more about these publications.

Thank you.

PCDunn: Sims' "Living London" was published as a series of 36 magazine - issues between 1901 and 1903. Helena refers to these.

The three volume book edition was made up from them not much later .

As Chris said, there are 36 magazines, and I have 33 and am selling the lot as a bundle to the highest bidder.

Cheers
