Imagine a cruise lasting over four months, not to mention the cost of it! But this was 1929, the Golden Age of Travel, and not only were tourists offered the very finest, but their travel brochures were exciting too. In this case it's a HARDBACK book measuring 6"x9" with 96 pages, lavish sepia toned photographs and information on the many ports of call -- the Madeira Islands, Algeria, Monaco and the French Riviera, southern Italy, the Holy Land, Egypt, French Somaliland, India, Ceylon, Burma, Prince of Wales Island, Straits settlements and Malay States, French Indo-China, Java, Dutch East Indies, Sulu Archipelago, South China, Korea, Japan, the Hawaiian Islands, California, the Panama Canal Zone, Cuba and -- finally -- back to New York. Fares began at $2000 and went, as the ad so discretely says, "upward from there." As you can see from the photo, there is fading to the edges of the blue covers, but is clean as a whistle inside and tightly bound.
