Abstract:

"The Great Exhibition of 1851 was the largest, most lavish, best-attended display of accomplishments and projections into the future ever assembled until that time. It became the forerunner of subsequent World's Fairs. This is a facsimile of the original catalog of the Great Exhibition of 1851. The volume contains over 300 pages of engravings, selected as the most representative of the works on display in London at the Crystal Palace. There are, in addition, many fine engravings of the immense hall of glass, itself an architectural and engineering wonder of the time.... This exhibition was organized into four main divisions: Raw Materials, Machinery and Mechanical Invention, Manufactures, and Sculpture and Plastic Art....Awaiting the reader is a staggering array of illustrations and highly informative prize-winning essays that evaluate the different aspects of the Exhibition, giving an added measure of nostalgia to this volume....Illustrated here are glass chandeliers, fine carriages, pianos, arms and armor, silks, woolens, laces, rich embroideries, gloves, silverware, ornamental furniture, fountains, clocks and watches, cutlery, hardware, brass and ironwork, sleighs, fireplaces, carpets, shoes, mosaics, statuary, bookbindings, mirrors, frames, stained-glass windows, and so much more."--back cover.
