Scarce decorative souvenir item distributed only to the 3rd class passengers who sailed on this ship, so an inherently limited production, almost certainly printed in the low hundreds for this voyage.
Color lithographed pictorial card stock paper wrappers, fashionable couple shown in front of the grand liner. Map on rear cover, wonderful art deco ocean liner color art on cover.
This scarce early 20th century booklet is over 90 years old and shows some signs of handling and time. Item is not new or in "new" condition.
Paper covers gently age worn, slight rubbing, tiny scuff to color at front middle spine, remains overall exceptionally attractive, clean
Text block paper is gently toned, minor signs of handling, internally still clean, well preserved, tight, sound.
Still attractive on the shelf. The fragile 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 great early 20th century pictorial survives.
