4to, 10.5 by 8 inches, 27 by 20 cm. 24 pp., plus wraps. Issued as a souvenir at the Chicago 1934 World's Fair in conjunction with the German pavilion where a quintessential idealized Black Forest or Schwarzwald Village was created. Today this Teutonic idyll lives on in such settings as Frankenmuth, Michigan. In 1934 this was a bit of innocent fun that belied the stirrings that had already erupted in Germany.
