The flexible cover is intact, albeit misshapen and suffering a few minor cracks. What you do get is a complete data sheet set for all of the Sylvania Tubes manufactured at the time of the catalogs publication. It is undated, but based on the Edition and Printing Number, it would be estimated to be a late 1950s Vintage.
