First edition folio, 242 pages, 500 illustrations, catalog of offerings at New York Exposition (first international exposition of its kind in the United States), includes ads from sponsors, architectural drawings, maps, artwork reproductions. Original blue cloth binding stamped in gold.

A wonderful resource for anyone interested in antiques, art, commerce and science. Hundreds of illustrations can assist in dating and identifying objects.

The spine is torn, corners are rubbed and bent. The title page is water stained as are the last few pages of the book. There is random foxing. Considering its age a very presentable book.
