L' Exposition Coloniale de Paris

Trillat, Joseph, introd. L'Exposition Coloniale de Paris. Paris: Librairie des Arts Decoratifs (A. Calavas), n.d. [1931]. [8]p text and captions + 54 large collotype photos, all loose in gold board portfolio with ties. Boards rubbed; scattered foxing to plate fore-edges and margins. The photos, by Chevojon, are very good. ** Photographic record of the large and popular colonial exposition that displayed to the world the cultures of the French colonies and addressed, in its way, issues of colonialism. The large detailed photos show the villages and buildings that were reproduced, peoples in native dress, pavilions, etc. Focuses on southeast Asia, Oceania, and Africa, but other nations participated, and the photo of the large model of Mount Vernon comes as a surprise. The exposition influenced design and cuisine in Paris. Shipping/handling may be extra; please keep this in mind when ordering. (Item ID: 1005704)
