    How much was this book worth?
    It looks like a (expensive ) vintage collectable.
    and did you get this during your vegas trip?
    great find.

    Oh, I love how this book is put together. It looks like a stack of prints were hole-punched, and maybe a few tip or taped in images?

    This is such an unassuming book that has aged beautifully. What will the “self-published” (via the internets) books of today look like 70 years on?
