Amazing! Imagine a booklet with yapped edges, none of which are torn or falling off! This is a very nicely kept souvenir. There's a beautiful color picture of the building at frontis as it was in 1946. Illustrations continue throughout the text in black and white. Text is lengthy and covers the origin of the Smithsonian, how it's the Nation's treasure chest, Native, Americans, life and the sun, live animals, scientific exploration, art, the Smithsonian in war time and more. Booklet measures 7-1/4" x 10-1/4" with 64 clean pages, tightly bound. The spine strip shows no creasing either. Very nice for a gift.
