At the end of the 19th Century Emile Hermés travelled the world collecting the most beautiful travel objects. He bought these back to Paris and used them as inspiration for the fine pieces of luggage and travel objects created by Hermés throughout the 20th century. The collection and the Hermés products it inspired are presented in this book - trunks, valises, umbrellas, auto accessories, toiletry cases and much more. The glamour of travel and the Hermes brand make this a luxurious and fascinating book.
