24 good looking art deco like illustrations that face pages of text which herald the modern age and the greatness of America with short pieces on the greatness of f Electricity, Advertising, Skyscrapers, Radio, The Department Store, Commercialism, Air Conquest, Science, Modern Art, and one disturbing page on Jews which smacks of Anti-Semitism "Even the sacred edifices of banking and sacrosanct mysteries of wall street have been penetrated with a joyous zest he invades the dwelling places of the elect" Lacking the rare dustjacket. The Blue illustrated boards are in very nice condition with a touch of wear to the tip on the bottom cover, and rubbing to the spine. Also the usual tonning to the paper, but the book itself is nice, clean (in terms of the images). Near fine.
