ADVERTISING. HUDSON'S HOUSEHOLD REMOVALS. - Hudson's Household Removals. Fire Proof Depositories.

London, the company [1904]. Quarto publisher's colour illustrated boards; 16 leaves of blotting paper with Hudson's heading etc printed on both sides. The text inside the covers and on the blotter pages is in French. Calendar for 1905 inside the back cover. ¶ A splendid bit of futuristic international marketing with a view of one of their coming airships wafting a van over the London skyline; 1904 was a good time for powered airships. It's a quibble that the motor, indeed a pilot, for Hudson's airship is invisible but what is odd is that the Hudson van, identical to the vans on the back cover, is still horse powered. Included inside the back cover are letters of approbation from royal and aristocratic clients, from the Empress Eugenie in 1894 to Baron von Stael in 1903.
