The Great Exhibitions - 150 years


Price: £35.00


by John Allwood.
Revised and updated by Ted Allan CBE PhD (UK) and Patrick Reid OC MC (Canada). Both are past-presidents of The International Bureau of Expositions in Paris.

The first edition of this book published in 1977 was widely regarded in international circles as the definitive history of the medium. Now the long awaited second edition has been made available, revised and with new chapters along with beautiful illustrations.

The volume is required reading for the professional, and a treasure trove of information for the amateur enthusiast. It provides not only commentary on the past, including the Great Exhibition 1851 in Hyde Park visited by 6 million people, but a glimpse into the future of international exhibitions.

200+ black & white illustrations and 32 colour pages
