Strongly art-deco styled history of the Paris Metro published on the occasion of the International Colonial Exhibition of 1931. Large quarto format with metallic boards, old staining close to foreedge; metro tunnel designed black endpapers, this copy printed on verso of title page: 'Le present volume tire sur papier Chesterfield, a ete imprime pour Monsieur A.R. Cooper Chief Engineer of the Underground Railways Company of London' - by contrast the Yale copy has the imprint details but no named individual. Stamped 'Technical Investigation Section' on several pages. The book is illustrated throughout with high quality half tone photographs, colour plates and coloured maps. Splitting to the inner hinge at the end of the book and more old damp staining which has resulted in the final blank partially adhering to the lower board. Apparently held in one British library only at York.
