From my understanding this book was put out by the president of the repubic at that time, Manuel Estrada Cabrerra, in order to attract business and tourism to the counrty. It is written in with Spanish on the left side of each page and English on the right. This is a nice copy which was rebound at some point but done well. All pages are present and I only saw 1 page with 1 small tear. Overall in very good shape. Will be mailed USPS with delivery confirmation. No international shipping on this item. Any questions about the contents of this book just google it. You will find an article which was in La Prensa earlier for the book's 100th anniversary. There are other sites with info on the book.
