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. South Asian travel, Americana, automobilia, printing arcana in a single piece.

Large octavo. Wire-stitched in the original striking silver and yellow printed light card wraps. With the original mailing enclosure, torn but complete. Profusely illustrated with 3-D images to the text. Viewing glasses loosely inserted. Very good indeed.
