I find the material dazzlingly contemporary, but believe it makes a tremendous gift for parents or grandparents who can use these images to bond with their progeny.
It's fun to view the citizens on the streets in their jackets and ties as a picture of the past; and elders will have a grand time pointing out the way things were (as in "that's the old look of the Museum of Natural History" or "I remember the Metropolitan Museum when the knights in armor were in the main hall."
Get it or give it. It's grand and at a bargain price.
But how much money do you want to pay for what amounts to 23 full page prints (and a couple of pages of studies)? There's the (charcoal) rub... but I suggest that if you think of this volume as a bound portfolio, it is worth every cent.
