21 A Trip to New York with Bobby and Betty 
Thomas, Lowell
New York: Dodge Publishing Co., 1936. First Edition
Cloth 4to - over 9" - 12" tall. Very Good. No Jacket Book 
Light green cloth, lettered in ivory. 92 pp., illus. w/ b&w photographs. An early (apparently the first) entry in the "Seeing America with Bobby and Betty Series," which eventually included the San Francisco Exposition, Washington D.C., and two entries for the New York World's Fair. Thus not to be confused with the later "A Trip to the New York World's Fair with Bobby and Betty" (1938), by Grover Whalen as told to Elsie-Jean, revised and re-issued in 1940 as "Fun at The Fair: A Trip to the New York World's Fair of 1940 with Bobby and Betty." The present volume, issued in 1936, is among Thomas's scarcer publications, most notable now less as a children' introduction to the city than for its many photographs, from Underwood & Underwood and other sources, difficult to locate otherwise, straying considerably beyond the touristy meccas such as the Statue of Liberty to include wonderful images of Chinatown and a pushcart market on Orchard Street. Cover cloth is a bit faded, and a bit unevenly, but overall presents with only light shelf wear, mildly tanned spine panel and endsheets, all typical of issue. Minor exposure to several corners and at heel of spine. Firm binding, clean interior. Stated 1st edition. 037004
