The San Antonio Guidebook Collection was created by the library to gather together printed pamphlets and leaflets with descriptive content on the city of San Antonio, Texas, presented in textual or pictorial form. Most of the items were aimed at the tourist market and emphasized the historic, cultural, and scenic landmarks of the city. A lesser number were produced for economic development purposes, promoting local businesses or business opportunities. Some works, mostly pictorial in nature, were intended as souvenirs. Also included are reports from the Municipal Advertising Commission, on promotional efforts on behalf of the city.
