Facsimile reprint of the original WPA September 1941 booklet. 54 pages (publisher's pagination includes rear cover but not the front cover). Staple-bound booklet; H 21.25cm x L 14cm. Tan paper cover. Foreword by WPA Assistant Commissioner Florence Kerr. Features hundreds of Writers' Project books and pamphlets with their original retail prices all organized alphabetically by state and territory. Concludes with a brief list of regional publications, a list of WPA state offices, and forthcoming titles in the American Life Series, National Defense Series, etc. The Federal Writers' Project issued at least two previous catalogues of its publications, the first in 1937 and another in 1938. Although it does not provide a complete WPA title list and only supplies basic bibliographic information, this catalogue remains a highly desirable checklist for any WPA collector who, upon perusing its pages, will either agonize or salivate at the challenge of finding all of the listed titles. A fine copy. Description copyright David Hallinan, Bookseller. Bookseller Inventory #
