These information booklets were included with 'Royal Bronze Finish' solid metal scale models of prehistoric animal issued by Abbeon, a company dealing in humidifiers and anti-humidity equipment.  In 1955, a complete set of these models could be purchased in 3" and 6" versions for $8.00 or $16.00 respectively.  Individual models and pairs of models could also be purchased.  These models appear to be SRG (Sel-Right Gifts Co.) figurines and it is possible that the 'information booklets' are identical to the SRG booklets without the usually 'SRG' identification (ref. Robert Telleria). To date, I've only read about the Information booklets.  If you have images of these booklets, please contact me at mmriley@dinofan.com
 
Advertising cards for this set were mailed to perspective buyers (see Advertising section below). The individual from whom I obtained these stated that they were mailed directly to her father's house as evidenced by the typed address on the cards which I blanked out for purposes of this website. A different source has indicated that a third version of the ad cards was issued.
