Having studied and collected the World’s Columbian Exposition since the s, our first book on the fair was published in to celebrate the fair’s centennial. That book, commissioned by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, was published in a slipcased limited edition and a jacketed hardcover. The United States followed in with a world's fair in Philadelphia, but this exposition lost money and left many Americans wondering if the exposition movement would ever take hold in the United States. Chicago's World's Columbian Exposition cast all doubts aside.
