There are 8 comic strips (or 'picture stories'), 14 'written stories', and a number of articles plus puzzles. All stories are accompanied by black and white illustrations. There is one colour frontispiece, which is overall in very good condition, bar a dog ear in the bottom left corner (does not intrude onto the image itself) and some millimetre tears along the top of the page. The World-Wide Quiz (the book's only puzzle) has been partially completed in ball-point pen.

Not price-clipped. Page 1 has a 2½″ (6¼ cm) tear in the bottom right corner. Foxing present on first few pages, sporadic thereafter. Binding generally tight. Pages slightly yellowed, but remain clean and bright.
