MALAYA. British Industries Fair 1948 [cover title]. [Singapore, Printed by F. R. Vine, Acting Government Printer], 1948.
Oblong small 8vo. Lithographic card wrappers, pp. 11, numerous paltes after photograph and charts, oter margin of front wrapper minimally scuffed, light scattered spotting to text, a good copy of this ephemeral and beautifully produced item.
A rare survival of a Singapore publication, issued just two years after the Japanese occupation forces had surrendered. Im- and export was already staggeringly up compared to pre-war figures.
Offered together with the follow-up fair publication for 1948. This with additional colour printed folding map. Front cover with small restored marginal flaw, otherwise very good.
COPAC locates one copy of the 1947 fair booklet, at Oxford and the publication for 1953 in the British Library; this publication not in COPAC.
