Three Travel Albums of Paris, Rome, Albania, Czechoslovakia, and Germany from 1934-1940.

(N.p., Self-published, 1934-1940). Hand-assembled photo albums. Oblong quartos. Three unique, twenty-four-page albums filled with small format black and white photographs. Each album captioned and hand decorated with ink-and-gouache drawings on gray card stock, presumably by the unidentified photographer. The whimsical, humorous illustrations create an ironic contrast to the photographs which document the traveler's journeys across Europe at the dawn of the Second World War. Albums also contain mounted travel tickets and ephemera. Unique and fascinating item from both an aesthetic and historical perspective. All texts in German. Paris (1934); string-bound in near fine, slightly soiled cloth-covered linen boards. Rome and Albania (1938); ribbon-bound in near fine felt-covered linen boards, with photographs protected by cobweb-imprinted tissue dividers (some small holes in the black felt covering). Czechoslovakia and Germany (1940); string-bound in cloth-covered linen boards; near fine with minor soiling to the cloth, photographs again protected by cobweb-imprinted tissue dividers.
