Lot x 6 American Sesqui-Centennial (150th year anniversary) International Exposition Souvenir Programs.
Published 1926, United States.
Nice and unique lot of 6 assorted pamphlets & albums, each c. 30 pages, all issued during, at or for the Exposition held in Philadelphia in 1926 to celebrate the founding of the nation in 1776. All items are illustrated.
Publisher's paper wrappers in various sizes and formats as seen in pics. The photographic Union News Company oblong booklet is particularly nice, but all display a unique charm.
Items are now all almost 100 years old and shows some signs of handling and time. Items are not modern reproductions, these are survivals from the actual event.
Paper covers gently age worn, slight rubbing, various small signs of handling, storage and time, all remain attractive.
Still attractive on the shelf. The booklets and pamphlets display a pleasing and unique age patina and are in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
Please review photos for more detail and our best attempt to convey how this antique item survives.
Average cover measures c. 9 1/2" H x 7" W.
