Materials - 40s travel guide

Zakopane, Przewodnik Uzdrowiskowy (Polish). As I don't speak Polish, I don't have an exact traslation. Please let me know if you know what it is. It looks like a travel guide of Zakopane, a ski town in southern Poland. The booklet is printed in 1948.

Condition: The glue used to bind this booklet is wearing out, so the pages are falling off the spine. The pages have been stapled together and the metal is rusting. Ultimately this little booklet has seen better days, I'm surprised that it has survived this long.

The cover is very funky, it looks like some of the letterpress stationery you see around. The insides have really great black and white pictures and some very cool advertisements.

I haven't quite decided what to make of the cover yet, but some of the advertisements will most likely become covers for notebooks.
