Old scrapbook-like book bound with a string. Time has not been very kind because the edges are curled and worn and the title page and rear free endpaper (the only pages which have text) are loose but present. The brown paper covers are chipped and folded, the inside black construction-type pages are less chipped and folded but several are loose or almost loose since the string binding it together is coming apart. All illustrations are still very good. Front cover has raised letters for the title and a picture of a Colorado sunset. The lower right corner of this picture is torn off. ; Color ; Oblong 8vo 8" to 9" tall; 45 pages; 22679
