This is the Minerva Paris Book, Volume #40, from 1935. It is a combination fashion magazine and knitting pattern book, produced by Minerva Yarns.
It measures 11" x 8.5", and contains several "Paris Fashion" outfits modeled, and the patterns to recreate them.
This antiquated issue has a worn cover, but is in fair pre-owned condition throughout. It does have a few notes in the margins, written in pencil. These marks are light.
