2 Edited by D. Croal Thomson. Assisted by Herbert E. Butler and E. G. Halton The Paris Exhibition 1900. The Art Journal
London The Art Journal Office. H. Virtue and Company, Limited 1901 First edition Decorated Cloth Very Good 
Small folio sized, 12.5 inches tall. 374 pp. The best survey of the arts, fine and decorative, at the 1900 Paris Exhibition, which was a real high water mark for world exhibitions in terms of design, influence, the zeitgeist. In contrast to earlier Art Journal surveys of the world expositions, and a mark of technological progress as well, this issue relies heavily on actual photography. Minor wear to the boards.
