Photos pictured here are (1) the Los Angles, largest US blimp (at the time) flying above the world's longest suspension bridge (at the time) over the Delaware River connecting Camden, NJ, to Philadelphia, Pa, and (2) an aerial view of Newark airport. These books are in very good condition. Most wear is to the exterior. Covers show slight wear at bottom of spine end and bottom corners, Vol 4 more so than Vol 3, probably because of index use. Page ends have some light bug damage which includes some loss of gilding on tops. Small slight stain bottom front endpapers Vol 3. Bindings are good and tight. Pages are clean. Covers are pretty, faux marbeling on leatherette over very heavy boards. These are chock full of great info for the history buff!
