I wish every 70 year old booklet looked this great. There are no names, no creasing, no loose pages, no smudges, nothing, except a couple small spots to plain back cover. Everything is also very crisp. The booklet measures 8-3/4" x 11" with 54 pages, all printed on quality coated paper. Many photographs enhance the various models shown and described. There's also much American history. Booklet a collectible in itself. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" Tall. Bookseller Inventory #
