The making of "Shepp's World's
Fair Photographed" has absorbed the
entire interest and energies of head,
heart and hand of the publishers, and
entails such a financial outlay as guar
antees the very best results that human
eyes can gaze upon. The official heads
of the Exposition Management would
not give the seal of their approval to any
thing but the best, and we think the
very best none too good for our
patrons. The photographs of the build
ings in this book stand out clear-cut as
cameos against the sky. Every nice de
tail of ornament and design is clearly
visible. Almost every mark of the chisel
reveals itself clear-cut as an intaglio.
Photographs of
the Exhibits.
In "Shepp's World's Fair Photo
graphed," the interior views of build
ings, pavilions and exhibits are distinct,
definite and beautiful, defying competi
tion. Nearly every country on the Globe
paid tribute to the World's Columbian
Exposition. Woman vied with man in
the splendid display made. Anchored
within the walls of the "White City
was a wealth of artistic and industrial
treasure, the purchase of which would
bankrupt the richest nation on earth.
From snowy Alaska to Cape Horn,
from the isles of the engirdling oceans,
from the nations of Europe and Asia,
and even from Africa and Australia,
glorious treasures were poured in in one
generous avalanche. Whatever human
intel igence could conceive, or human
skill execute, was found in these treasure
palaces of the world.
Huge trains drawn by palpitating en
gines, snorting in steam over thousands
of miles, bore these inexhaustible riches
to Chicago for many months. We bring
them to you in our wonderful book,
which, now that the World's Fair has
passed away, will remain not only a
souvenir, but a vivid panorama of the
most marvelous display of ancient
or modern times.
