Guide des Objets Exposes dans le Pavillon du Royaume Uni. 1937 Exposition Internationale Paris AND Guide to the Exhibits in the Pavilion of the United Kingdom, International Exhibition, Paris 1937.
First edition. Full brown morocco with blind-stamped rule around borders and gilt lettering to spine. Top edge gilt. Original printed wrappers with designs by Eric Ravilious on front and back bound in. Light shelf wear otherwise fine.
Both the French and English texts of the catalogue for the Pavilion of the United Kingdom at the Paris International Exhibition of 1937. But the English text varies from that printed separately. For instance, in the ‘Book, Printing and Illustration’ section, the separate version gives the Devon Shell Guide as illustrated by ‘Various photographers’, but this joint publication states, ‘Photographs by John Betieman’ [sic].
