A charming graphic and a map so crisp that I felt like the first person to open it! There's a tiny tear at the top of one of the folds, but I repaired it with a tiny piece of nonbrowning archival tape. The brochure measures 4"x9-1/2" folded, but then opens to 8" wide. It's printed on coated paper and has photogrpahs in black and white with the crisp map at back. Unpaginated, but I counted 25. View more info

Condition: Good folder, Very good items inside


Love the black and white Scotties who pose for all things Scotch whiskey.I had one of these bridge tally folders years ago, but without the pencil which this one has. The pencil's cool because it too is marked Black and White along its length. The tally pad has all the pages, but only the first one is toned because it's against the printing inside the folder. The folder tells how to play Bridge and how to score. Folder measures 4" x 7-3/4" and opens up to twice that much... View more info

This one has much to say in 326 pages, plus interesting advertising for hotels, perfume, office machines, clothing and much more in the back section. The best ads though are in the front with full color pictures -- especially the ad for Rolex watches. The annual measures 8-1/4" x 11". The yapped edges have been trimmed due to many small tears. The overhangs were scissored fairly well, but there is one little glitch to the outer side of the front cover. I also repaired t... View more info
