I purchased this 1930s book on Amazon. I wasn't able to read it because it came with some mold "issues" and gave me a big allergy attack. It had to go back in the plastic bag!
As a crankie artist, I really love reading old articles. Typical for this time period, the information is written for boys, glad we are evolving.
