This volume was provided as compliments of the Frishmuth Bro. and Co. of Philadelphia, Pa. There are at least five advertisements for the company including an image of the business, for Stag Tobacco, chewing tobacco, Green Goose Tobacco and etc.  Unfortunately this book has some condition problems: the dark blue boards with silver lettering and decorations are soiled, the pages have browned, the gutters are cracking, small pin holes on the spine, darkened page edges, and there is a previous owner's signature that is dated 1934. However, there are no loose or missing pages, the pages are not torn or  marked and the coloring on the Green Goose advertisement is bright.
