Published 1901, Buffalo, New York by Robert Allan Reid.
80 pages. Text in English. Profusely illustrated throughout w/ b&w photos.
Publisher's paper wrappers, embossed gilt title lettering, oblong format.
A wonderful album with a great assortment of views, many with crowds and people not simply sterile views of building facades. It appears this booklet was revised over time, and it seems possible different versions contain some different views based on newer photographs of the Expo as it was under way.
Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Item is not new or in "new" condition.
Binding gently age worn, rear cover well damp stained with some damp staining to the interior gutter of the text block of the final section, signs of handling but nothing offensive or severe, remains overall attractive as an object.
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 item survives. The asking price reflects the condition based on our examination and 35+ years full time exposure to antiquarian books and ephemera of all types. Flaws seen and described have been taken into account.
