Stated 2nd Printing of the Revised Ed. (1942). Tight, square, bright copy. Firm corners. No remainder mark. No internal notes or markings. Crisp pictorial DJ in Mylar cover. Photo illus. in B&W. 1st Edition of the WPA Guide to D.C. was in 1927 (Washington City and Capital) and was twice the size of this volume. The "author" of the preface glosses over the "Chop Job " to the original guide which was blunt and critical of Congress and Gov't. in general. Feathers were ruffled and censorship was the answer. Nothing of importance was deleted. The story of the WPA and the guides is fascinating. USPS Tracking provided. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 16416
