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 …Akron, OH: The Mohawk Rubber Company, 1930 Stock Code: 102009
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 wrappers. With the original mailing enclosure, torn but complete.
Profusely illustrated with 3-D images to the text. Viewing glasses loosely inserted.
Very good indeed.
