One is of the northwest states; another of Alaska and the route to Alaska; , the third is the full route of the Union Pacific. The cover is a sage green art paper with embossed gilt printing and a small vertical rectangle of a scene of the falls in red, grey, and gilt. There is an embossed gilt logo below the falls. The art and printing was nicely done. The stapled binding is tight. The color of the paper has darkened slightly at the edges of the external cover. There is a short tear at the fore-edge of the front cover, now with a tiny piece of archival tape to prevent further wear. The bottom rear corner has a short tear and crease. There is a faint number 50 written on the front upper corner, probably an old price. There is one small spot. There are no other marks or writing. The pages are quite clean and crisp.
