1939-1940 New York World's Fair Mechanical Address Book called the "World's Fair List Finder" picturing the Trylon and Perisphere with the list of letters on the right and a pointer that when adjusted next to the desired letter, will open the 'finder' to that letter's page when the clip on the bottom is pressed. It is lithographed tin. The bottom of the cover also has "New York 1939" written on it. On the back it is marked "Made by Bates Mfg. Co. Orange, N. J. U.S.A." Uncommon. Size: 3 3/4" wide by 7 1/4" long by 7/8" thick (to top of screws at top). Condition: Very Fine. There are a few small spots of missing lithography and a drop of rust. There is writing on at least one page inside. It looks really nice on the desk or next to the phone.
