  5. The School Children of America are invited to take a Trip with Mohawk across Distant Seas through Foreign Lands into the Rubber Country of the Strange East

    The School Children of America are invited to take a Trip with Mohawk across Distant Seas through Foreign Lands into the Rubber Country of the Strange East

    First edition of this extremely uncommon - no copy traced institutionally - promotional travelogue conducting the "School Children of America" from rural Ceylon to industrial Ohio, and all in headache-inducing 3-D. Printed using the red/cyan anaglyph 3-D process which enjoyed great popularity in the 1920s, this is a great example of a promotional/educational use, being produced for The Mohawk Rubber Company, with the name of the local distributor - Walker's Garage of Helena, Montana - on the back panel of the wraps, and with "The Mohawk Chief" tyre - or "tire" - design around the lenses of the viewing glasses.

  6. Shell Motor Tours.

    Shell Motor Tours.

    A complete guide to the best and most interesting provincial and desert routes in Egypt.
    First edition, extremely uncommon early moto-tourist handbook for Egypt, with no copies traced in libraries. Tours are listed with Cairo and Alexandria as starting points, beginning with 50-mile round trips, such as Cairo to the pyramids at Saqqara, and extending to considerably longer journeys, including Cairo to Luxor and Alexandria to the isolated Siwa Oasis: testament to a time when Egypt was perhaps more easily navigable than it is today.
