Following are the intaglio-printed portions of the book, Ninety Years of Security Printing, produced by the British American Bank Note Company in 1956.  The book is spiral-bound and is 25 pages long plus several pages showing samples of BABNC's work.  The book is fairly bland in its overall presentation, but contains some interesting and honest information regarding the history of the company to that date.

Hmmmmmmmmmm, seems to me there was one in a Canadian auction some years ago; maybe a CNA auction or maybe Geoff Bell auction.  Stopped keeping catalogs about 6 years or so (just too much space).
Maybe Heritage; will have to look through their archives.

Back in 2010, before this forum existed, I posted a thread about this book here:
https://www.cointalk.com/threads/british-american-bank-note-book.109727

I would love to find an affordable copy of it. The question I've always had is, why would a company celebrate their 90th anniversary? I think I figured it out, but let's see what everyone else thinks.
