Hardcover with related ephemera (See full description below), Stated First Edition 1977 Exposition Press 44 pages. Near Fine in a NF DJ. Blue pebble-grain cloth boards with gilt titles - corners sharp. A hint of shelf/edge wear to the unclipped DJ, no tears to DJ but the rear panel has a touch of dust soiling, DJ now in mylar. No previous owner marks - all pages are bright, clean and crisp. In this beautifully illustrated history, Mr. Burke tells the story of the Ford Company's contribution to the Chicago Wold's fair of 1933-34, the Ford Rotunda. After the fair was over, the Ford Company decided to rebuild the Rotunda in its hometown of Dearborn, Michigan at its own expense. A tragic accidental fire destroyed the building in 1962. Very Scarce and highly recommended. Added to this offer is an authentic Ford Rotunda customer brochure (16 pages), Very Good in illustrated wraps. Minor shelf/edge wear to covers (penciled date of July 1956 on front cover), rear panel has a touch of rubbing and soiling. Interior has a fold-out map of the Ford Rouge Complex that lists 35 locations in the legend. A superb signed copy with related ephemera. ISBN-0682487309. LOC SSE-6
