I can't tell if the card covers are original to the book, but they appear to be. A couple of stamps, a barcode, and a bookplate inside the front cover are the extent of the xlib markings. There is a bit of rubbing to the edges of the card covers. The book is not paginated sequentially, but is just over 1/2" thick. Mimeographed on coarse paper. An organizational chart on blueprint paper (dated March 30th, 1926) is in a pocket in the back. Only a few pictures, but gives the new officer detailed information on the construction of dirigibles, biplanes, etc. At the facility. Down to how to sew and treat the fabrics used. This is pretty neat stuff. Not too much on engines, as the book mentions they are not produced at the facility, but it does discuss testing them. A very scarce & interesting bit of naval/aviation history. ; Ex-Library; 4to 11" - 13" tall
