About this Item

Pamphlet. First edition, third printing (published two months after the first). Signed by Steinbeck in a contemporary hand. The cover features Dorthea Lange's famous photo of a mother breast feeding her child. Originally published as a series of articles titled "The Harvest Gypsies" that appeared in the San Francisco News, this book is the result of Steinbeck's research into the plight of California's farm workers, many of whom migrated from the Dust Bowl of Oklahoma. Steinbeck allowed the Lubin Society to publish the articles in booklet form, with the addition of "Starvation Under the Orange Trees" that served as an epilogue, so that the proceeds could be used to help the farm workers. An important title since this work provided the basis for The Grapes of Wrath. Couple of tiny, light stains, modest creasing to back cover, solid very good plus. Signed copies are extremely scarce. Only one copy signed by Steinbeck has been offered at auction in the past 30 years. Bookseller Inventory # SKB-12692
