Air France Tourist Travel Album: To the Four Corners of the World.
Published 1955, Paris by Alepee & Cie for Air France.
195  pages. Text in English. Profusely illustrated throughout with great color photos and illustrations.
Publisher's pictorial paper wrappers. Scarce post WW II mid-20th century airlines promotional book packed with great visual content, including numerous airplane interior views. Very expensive in it's day, no doubt a relatively small circulation given this.
Magazine is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Book is not new or in "new" condition.
Binding gently age worn, assorted small signs of handling and time, remains overall attractive as an object.
Text block paper is gently toned, internally still well preserved, tight, sound.
Still attractive on the shelf. Book displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
Please review photos for more detail showing how this vintage item survives. The asking price reflects the condition based on our examination and 35+ years full time exposure to antiquarian books. Flaws seen and described have been taken into account.
Book Measures c. 11" H x 8 1/2" W.
