Internationale Ausstellung für Musik- und Theaterwesen, Wien 1892.
Wien, M. Herzig [1892]
12 plates on fold. ℓ., fold. col. plan. 24 cm.

This pamphlet was produced as part of an international exhibit of music and theater history held in Vienna’s Prater May 7th to October 9th, 1892.

The pamphlet includes plates of:

  • Ausstellungs-Theater
  • Musik-Halle
  • Schattenspiel-Theater
  • Musikplatz
  • Several street scenes from an exhibit that reconstructed “Alt-Wien,” or Old Vienna (which was later shown at the 1893 Chicago’s World Fair

The pamphlet is just one long page, probably to allow for easier viewing of the “Alt-Wien” scenes that stretch over two or three pages.
