|The pictures below show larger views of the (3) 1933 - 1934 Century of Progress Chicago World's Fair Advertising Souvenir Items in this lot. The first picture below shows all three items and the second picture show the two smaller booklets opened.|
The ©1933 “Official Guide Book of The Fair” is loaded with (196) pages of information, pictures, and advertisements from those exhibiting at the Fair. Also at the beginning is a fold out map with a list of (102) of the exhibits or attractions at the Fair.
The two smaller booklets have (24) pages each filled with pictures and writing about the Fair. The writing is the same in each but the pictures are different. These were put together by “THE WOMEN ORGANISTS' CLUB OF BOSTON” and they are titled “A TRIP TO THE CENTURY OF PROGRESS”. The small booklets are bound with a pink cord.
All three of these for one price! To judge the sizes the Guide Book measures 5-7/8'' x 9-1/4'' x 3/4''. The smaller booklets appears to be in excellent condition as pictured. The Guide Book has some wear, creasing, dog eared page corners, a name on the cover, underlining, checkmarks and notes on some of the pages from the original owner who attended the Fair.
