Beautiful little book, part of an ongoing series, one volume of which has been published each year since 1903 by R.R. Donelley to be given to customers, stockholders ,and employees as Christmas keepsakes. The first time these enter the marketplace it's the SECONDARY marketplace. The color changes every 25 years -- this is from the navy blue series. Book measures 4-1/2"x7", has a gilded top edge and 264 pages. Illustrated. The foreword offers a sort of "State of the Union" in which the company reported that Life magazine ceased publication which Lakeside had been printing and that paper acquisition had been very difficult.. Book is a coast-to-coast journey written to celebrate the completion of the rail link between the east coast and Oregon in 1893. MANY titles available from the navy blue series of the 1950's, 60's and 70's and several from the 1940's red series.
