And a 1/4 page photo of ''The Italian Advance Towards Trieste". A few small marks, but internally VG. Overall VG +/NF. A fascinating period magazine and very topical given the current release of the film 1917. I have 9 Original copies of this illustrated newspaper dated 1917 (but NOT a 'run') that I am currently listing - so do enquire if interested in more than just this or any others - or the lot - during these dates.
