Large elephantine folio sized book (24 by 19 inches) on plans for the upcoming New York World's Fair, which dazzled crowds with its many futuristic designs and conceptions, introduced to the public television and other then stupendous new inventions, and came as the interwar peace was drawing to a close. The prospectus, for that is what it is, is full of bold Art Deco illustrations, some brightly colored. Perhaps most exciting is the double paged overhead panoramic shot of the entire city and beyond. Unpaginated, 34 pp. The boards are dusty, with edge and corner wear. Otherwise, clean and crisp.
