June 1960 issue, maybe 80 or so pp (numbering seems to run from earlier issues & there's a spinkle of romans for good measure. I think you'll buy this not just for the fiction but the ads are a treat too "Enjoy life in a Morris Oxford" or get a folding dinghy for fifteen pounds. Index to stories is in map form - a pretty good idea. View more info
