Notes

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.
