Printed in Leeds by Alf Cooke, Printers. A few small closed tears/chips (the print is repaired/reinforced to the reverse with archive tape) to the very edges of the blank margins, small loss to the very bottom left corner of the blank margin and 2 fold crease lines, though one is almost negligible, ONLY from having been folded into a 4to sized book for over 120 years! . A lovely vibrant image/colour print showing a late 19th Century football game ( though the "elbow and shoulder of God" seems to have been employed here!!! ) , in that wonderful colour printing that was done in the late 19th Century.
