Submitter: I found this book at an estate sale – it was first printed in 1950 and, seven years after that, was on its thirteenth printing…! The pictures really speak for themselves – words fail.
Holly: This was probably a reasonable library choice in 1950. It’s a museum piece now. Interesting from a cultural history point of view, but definitely not good information. What a great estate sale find, though! Libraries owning this – and there are a few – should follow that example and sell this in their book sale. Some collector out there will be glad to have it. You have simply got to read some of the passages below!
