"Replica of the Antique Original," being a modern (undated, but circa 1980) facsimile of this undated (but late 19th century) novelty item. Six oval openings are diecut down the right edge of the front wrapper and every page beneath, revealing red, yellow, blue, pink, green and brown watercolor pads -- which can then be accessed from every page. line drawings of historical locomotives are interspersed with color versions of the same locomotives (to be used as models for coloring). The original paintbrush is present and unused. A lovely novelty book.
