Festival of Britain, Science Exhibition Guide, back cover


The guidebook for the 1951 Exhibition of Science held at the Science Museum in South Kensington, London. The book begins with the background to the Festival overall and specifically to the Science Exhibition. It then gives information on all the exhibits included.

A very interesting guide as it explains the major innovations in science at that time, which of course have now become commonplace or completely overtaken by more recent scientific and technological developments.

The guide itself is 56 pages plus 28 pages of adverts for companies associated with the exhibition. Size 235 x 180mm with card covers. The covers have some curling at the corners but overall the guide is in good condition.

Price £20.00.
