This is an antique collection of 32 issues of 1892 LE MOUVEMENT GEOGRAPHIQUE : Journal populaire des Sciences geographiques : ORGANE DES INTERETS BELGES AU CONGO.
The outer book covering measures 16 inches high x 12 inches wide (40.6 cm x 30.5 cm), and the pages are just a touch smaller.
Some of the issues were published every two weeks, some every week and some every few days, which is why there are more than just 26 issues.
The two green outside covers are warped upwards. There is wear to both of these and to the leather binding.
One of the pages looks like it got loose many years ago and is very slightly frayed on the outer edge. The other pages are all in what I would call very good condition except for some minor bends here and there and some other very light wear.
I found the following online:
Le Mouvement Géographique was a geographical magazine published in Brussels from 1884 to 1922. It was initially edited by Alphonse-Jules Wauters, and primarily promoted and documented Belgian colonisation of Congo. From 1890, it was owned by the Compagnies du Congo pour le Commerce et l'Industrie.[1] Another periodical edited by Wauters, Le Congo illustré, was folded into the Mouvement Géographique in 1896.[2]
It weighs a little over 2 lbs. 15 oz. (1.338 kg).
