New York. Lamport & Holt Line. No date. Ca. 1912?
Booklet, black and white photo illustrations, color pictorial front cover map, color map on back cover, 31 numbered pages, 9 1/4 x 6 inches, color pictorial paper wrappers. Light soiling to front covers in the right and lower borders, overall very good condition. This booklet issued by the Lamport & Holt Line is distinguished by its striking color front cover illustration showing North and South America depicted in anthropomorphic form as two women holding hands. The interior features numerous black and white views. The back cover features a color map of North and South America with routes. There appear to have been other editions published by this company, using the same cover image. Interestingly, in the current edition the two women are set against a background of the globe with places of call between New York, Punta Arenas and San Francisco clearly marked (as opposed to a blue background). It seems likely that different editions were published for the North American and European markets. Item #55370
