L'Illustration Exposition 1937.
Published May 29th, 1937, Paris.
104 pages. Text in French. Profusely illustrated throughout. Abundant period advertising, much of it in a great French Art Deco style. Color throughout, also much b&w.
With a great oblong folding pictorial birds-eye view map of the fair grounds, a great folding color Rum ad, Renault auto color ad, and much more.
Large, heavy item with illustrated paper wrappers with Eiffel Tower front cover. Not to be confused with the many other issues around this time which are not focused on the fair, nor with this map
Binding remains clean, tight, and sound, cover with edge wear, small corner crease, short spine separation, rear cover lightly soiled.
Magazine remains overall clean, attractive, well preserved and displays a pleasing age patina, the age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
