An overlooked classic of the Disney genre! The 1964 New York World's Fair was a "training ground" for Disney and his Tomorrowland visions that would later be realized at Disneyworld. There were no less than four major exhibits at the fair that were influened by Disney. Most importantly, the original "It's a Small World" made it's debut at the fair. This ride was featured as part of the Pepsi-Cola sponsored pavillion and is directly credited to Disney in the guide. The second most important Disney influence here is the "Carousel of Progress." The very same Carousel is now a ride at Disneyworld in Orlando. Interestingly, the New York World's Fair itself was the original basis for what would become Epcot and is apparent when browsing through this book!
Original price of $2.59 intact on front cover. Original gold binding very clean, but corners a bit bumped. DJ a bit worn and scuffed, but very attractive overall. A very nice copy.
