NEW YORK WORLD'S FAIR 1939. - Pilgrimage to Tomorrow [five copies].

NY, Gemloid Corp [1938]. Each octavo publisher's comb bound laminated plastic and card; 100pp, illustrations throughout. Small chip from a corner of one, minor signs of use. ¶ I believe this to be the complete set of variant covers. I've been gathering these for about ten years and have not seen anything different for a few years now. Logically there should be an un-orange version of the one bottom left but I haven't seen it. A spiffy little book designed to be an all round souvenir. It begins with a section of views (drawings and photos of models) and descriptions of the forthcoming fair followed by a section of black card leaves for your own photos; then come some diary pages, some views of New York city and finally a few pages for autographs and addresses. The front cover is a view of the trylon and perisphere and surrounds in textured plastic - early 3D. One copy has been used as designed in part: the diary records in pencil the trip of, I think, a girl with her family to her aunt in Fairfield, Conn, and from there to the World's Fair. The family and friends divided into two parties - boys went to the fair one day, girls the next.
