, i-xi, 221 pages (all single-sided pagination). Paperback: H 27.75cm x L 21.5cm. Original blue paper covers with maroon cloth spine tape; pictorial front cover. Soiling and toning to covers with wear and curling along fore-edges, tear at front cover's bottom fore-edge corner. Toning to interior leaves which are printed in a typescript style; some curling and/or creasing at fore-edge corners of initial and rear leaves; some scattered soiling and foxing. Features b/w maps and tables. Text reflects the times as several passages regarding park development and suitability cite accessibility by the local white population. Interesting data and comments for developing parks and recreational areas with the state during the Great Depression. The Women's and Professional Division of the Works Progress Administration is credited on page ii for supplying various assistance in the preparation of the report. The book's general appearance and organization reflects typical WPA publication design. The title page and front cover both cite January 1928 as the report date but page iii indicates approvals being granted by various supervising officials in April 1938 so it is likely that the book wasn't actually published until at least May 1938 at the earliest. A good copy of an uncommon cooperating state and federal government study as OCLC only cites eleven copies among member libraries. Bookseller Inventory #
