About this Item

Four panel, accordion-folding peepshow of the 1867 Exposition Universelle, held on the Champ-de-Mars in Paris. The front-face shows a bird's-eye view of the exposition complex as seen from the north bank of the Seine. Beneath the image, the title is written in five languages, along with the publisher information. Three small, circular peep holes cross the center. The cut-out panels inside the peepshow depict the crowded interior of the circular Vestibule and Palace. The visitors, of all shapes and sizes and wearing all manner of dress, wander between the booths in the glass-ceilinged exhibition area. The booths themselves, colored in rich warm tones, represent a range of Eastern cultures, lending the entire spectacle an air of the exotic. The back-scene shows the open garden at the center of the Palace. Curtained entrances ring the green, labeled with the names and flags of the participating nations. These wonderfully detailed crowd scenes offer something new each time the viewer returns to them. The front and back boards are covered in a patterned purple cloth, with a gold border along the edges of the front-face. Light wear to covers and two small segments of gold border missing, else this rare peepshow is in fine working order. Bookseller Inventory # 25994
