Disappointing

I bought this magazine as the cover picture was painted by my great aunt and was therefore the most important part. Unfortunately there was a significant tear which removed the date of the edition. The reference to the Duke of Argyle implied significant content on the subject, in fact there was only one small photo of the Duke including 2 others, and no article as implied. In my view this was deliberately misleading.
