There is an article on Wikipedia if you wish to know more about the 1937 Paris International Exhibition. It focuses more on the nazi and soviet pavilions, but it is an interesting introduction to the event. This article is more developed and places the exhibition in its context (art, politics, architecture). This website shows very interesting documents.

Actually, the full name of
the exhibition was: "Exposition Internationale des Arts et Techniques dans la Vie Moderne" which means "International exhibition of Arts and Techniques in the Modern Life". 

Books of postcards from this exhibition are rare. Moreover, this one is in excellent condition and looks like it has never been opened, except for the first two pages. This is why I only showed three pictures of this book of postcards: the front cover, the back cover, and only one of the postcards, the very first one in the book, which is the pavilion of Italy. 

The nine other postcards are: 
- Pavilion of Switzerland
- Pavilion of Belgium
- Pavilion of the USSR
- Pavilion of Germany (in those days, people did not talk about "nazi" Germany, they just said "Germany")
- Varsovie Square
- Pavilion of Norway
- The Trocadero
- Trocadero again, but seen from above
- Museum of Modern Art. 

The front and back covers show very light signs of age. The ten postcards, which are real photos developed on shiny paper, are pristine. 

Please note that the pictures show a very white book of postcard and actually it is a bit more yellow, due to age.

Please note that removing postcards from a book of postcards may damage them, and decreases the value of the item.
