      into the next.

      Moderate wear to the unattached cover.

      The internal pages are in remarkably good vintage condition.

      Included in this bundle are 33 parts

            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
