The Illustrated History of the Centennial Exhibition held in Commemoration of the One Hundredth Anniversary of American Independence.
With a Full Description of the Great Buildings and all the Objects of Interest Exhibited in them.
Embracing also a concise History of the Origin and Success of the Exhibition, and Biographies of the Leading Members of the Centennial Commission, to which is added a Complete Description of the City of Philadelphia.
by James D. McCabe, Author of the "Centennial History of the United States", "Pathways of the Holy Land", etc. etc.
Embellished with Nearly 400 fine Engravings of Buildings, Exhibits and Scenes of the Great Exhibition.
--------------------------------------------------​
This book is a commemorative edition produced at the time of the fair. Heavily illlustrated with engravings of scenes of the buildings, and some of the items exhibited. Interesting to see what was considered state of the art technology at the time.
