I enjoy paper ephemera from bygone eras. This publication by General Electric to mark the semi-centennial (50th anniversary) of Roentgen's 1895 discovery of the X ray is circa 1945.
The book discusses Roentgen's discovery, how X rays are produced, X rays in medicine, x rays in industry, and new vistas in X ray.
