World's Fairs are places where industries show off their latest and greatest innovations and products. California was known even in 1894 for its cornucopia of food products: oranges, olive oil, wine, raisins, walnuts, dates, prunes, etc. These are well-described and pictured here. Crease to cloth on front cover, rubbing to extremities, white spot to rear cover, else about very good.
