Eisenhower" to Scotland; The "Royal Scot" et cetera.

The spline is also in very good solid condition again with only minor signs of wear on the top and bottom edges. Internally the book is in very good condition, all pages are present and attached, they are all clean and bright without any form of writing or damage or markings on any page .
