If you enjoy personal travel accounts this one is interesting. The author was a Cleveland businessman who made the tour with his wife for their 25th anniversary. As you can see,the booklet has a dustjacket which is almost unheard of with this one and for a very good reason. The jacket has no endflaps, so it just wraps around the booklet with one side shorter than the other. But what makes this jacket important is the fact that there's a letter printed on the reverse side of it (see photo). The trip covered Scotland (the author was born in Scotland), Ireland, the Queen Elizabeth (boat), Paris, Belgium, Switzerland and the Olympics. It's illustrated with black and white photographs and is signed inside by the author. The booklet measures 5"x7-3/4" and has 103 pages including itinerary. Faults include some light foxing at first and last pages and also some light foxing to exterior page edges, but is otherwise clean and tightly bound.
