If you vacationed in the beautiful White Mountain region of New Hampshire in the late 1930s and 1940s, you may have picked up Ernest Bisbee's souvenir "scrap book" for just twenty-five cents. Chock full of information about the early history and geologic beauty of the area, and illustrated throughout with black-and-white photos and drawings of legendary characters and famous sites, it surely provided hours of engrossing reading in cabins, cottages, tents, and motels. Revisit a simpler time with this faithful reproduction of a traveler's souvenir. Ernest Bisbee, born in 1880, was a Lancaster, New Hampshire farmer who supplemented his income by opening a print shop. Fascinated with American history, he created a handful of charming "scrap books" before his death in 1950.
