Spectacle in the White City: The Chicago World's Fair of 1893

SKU: 400004968885

$35.00 $31.50 Member Price
The World's Columbian Exposition, held in Chicago in 1893, combined nostalgia for the United States' European roots with a celebration of the nation's emergence as a world power. A splendid tribute to the exposition's "White City" of shining Beaux-Arts buildings, this volume offers a grand photographic record, printed in duotone in a sweeping landscape format. Essays and captions by a noted historian offer a guided tour of this prelude to 20th-century America's artistic and industrial might. 128 photographs.
