If you're talking about the periodical published in London as opposed to New York, the Library of Congress has a fairly complete set (if I'm reading the catalog right, from 1901 on).  If you're close enough to DC you could probably look at it in the Reading Room.  I've done that for other articles, so unless they can't find the right volume you should be able to get access.

I did a search of the on-line catalog at www.loc.gov, title search Country Life.  Some of the information there might be of assistance to your reference librarian if you're not close enough to get to the library.  LC control number 54029972, Call number S3.C9, I don't know what else might be helpful.
