A good example of this interesting Communist guide.
Intourist was the Soviet agency established in 1929 to promote the USSR’s image overseas. Stalin’s Russia wasn’t a closed country by any means, although many western visitors arrived as part of delegations sent by trade unions and other sympathetic groups. It is rare to find a complete copy of this guide with all 4 maps. The two maps of Moscow and Leningrad are usually lacked as inserted loose as a booklet at the rear of the volume. The other two maps bound in the book are of the European USSR and the Asiatic USSR.
First edition, Small 8vo, (15 x 10 cm), 706pp, 4 folding coloured maps including two maps of Moscow and Leningrad inserted loose as a booklet with printed wrappers at rear, adverts at rear, heavy pencilling inside on preliminary pages; bound in publisher’s black cloth, slightly faded on spine; overall a good firm copy.
