n.p. Intourist, Inc., 1939.
Red folder measuring 4 x 5 3/4 inches (150 x 113 mm) containing 10 post cards.
Souvenir folder issued to commemorate the 1939 World's Fair in New York. The folder consists of 10 post cards in black-and-white, with descriptions in English, French, and Russian on the verso of each card. Perhaps not surprisingly, two of the cards depict Lenin and Stalin, while others show a model of the Soviet Union's pavilion, a sailboat, Red Square, a Caucasian dance festival, Theatre Square, the fountains at Peterhof, holiday makers on the Black Sea, and a map showing Intourist offices around the Soviet Union. We find no institutional holdings in OCLC. No others in commerce (July 2021). A complete set of this rare portfolio.
CONDITION: Fading to lettering of folder, along with some creases and edge wear. Toning to the verso of the cards. Overall, Very Good or better. Item #2412
