Looks good. Came into a few extra bucks last night thanks to the Fiesta Casino so I ordered it.

Received my copy today. Excellent book. There's a few photos that I've seen from the WSU archives, but the vast majority of the reproduced photos are new to me.
Photo reproduction quality is generally good. A few could use greater contrast, but I'd imagine the original was pretty faded.
A good buy if you have a couple of spare Jacksons.
