Guide and Souvenir of Noumea.
Published c. 1925, Noumea, New Caledonia, South Pacific.
Folding brochure in wrapper covers. Text in English. Illustrated throughout. Unfolds to facsimile of a hand drawn city plan.
Almost certainly scarce/ rare ephemeral little souvenir.
Printed paper wrappers, to large sheets printed both sides folded into the paper covers. Clearly a local hand made item meant to sell or give to tourists.
Item is old and shows some signs of handling and time. Item is not new or in "new" condition.
Paper covers age worn, slight rubbing, remains overall clean and attractive as a fragile survival.
Paper is toned, signs of handling, small scattered spotting, internally still well preserved, tight, sound.
Still attractive on the shelf. The scarce pamphlet 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 and our best attempt to convey how this rare South Pacific tourism souvenir survives.
Covers measures c. 4 1/2" H x 5 1/2" W.
