About this Item

Outer folder: 37 by 28.5 cm. Unpaginated, sixteen leaves, with a folding plate. The primary large brochure is quite lavish, with many color and two tone illustrations, dramatic photographs, arresting graphics and laden with a high Art Deco sensibility. The purpose of this brochure was in essence to sell the fair to its potential sponsors, underwriters, and exhibitors and as P.R., create excitement in the press. And so it did, with architecture renderings that brings to mind the bold designs of Josef Urban or even of Oz, as in the movie released in 1939. Among the other parts, a handsome proof or mock-up of a "Certificate of Participation", containing original pen and ink and watercolor work; a letter from John D. Webber to Thomas Gunn, head of the Oregon World's Fair Committee, in which Webber expresses his bullishness about the state and the purpose of participating in the fairs; a large blueprint of the Hall of Western States; several large photos and illustrations of the Treasure Island fair and its pavilion(s); miscellaneous blank stationary; and lists of Oregon clus and organizations. Light wear, but everything is otherwise in very good to fine condition. Bookseller Inventory # 003945

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
