Book Description Washington, DC: Government Printing Office - US GPO [WPA - Works Progress Administration], 1937., 1937. Offprint publication reprinting a single chapter of the first edition of the Washington, DC WPA guide. Staple-bound booklet, H 23.25cm x L 15cm.

White paper covers soiled with a few nicks along edges, slight rust to binding staples, three-line ink stamp at top of front cover "From your Congressman | Jack Nichols | 2nd Oklahoma District" as most copies of the booklet were presumably distributed as Congressional lagniappes.

The Government Printing Office issued one other pamphlet offprint from the DC guidebook of the chapter "The White House." Both publications are quite uncommon. A good+ copy.

Book Description Government Printing Offic. Hardcover. 1937 First edition (NAP, SD on last page) , but probably a later sale item, since the 3 usual maps in the pocket have been replaced by a 2 sided "Washington Warning Area Map I & II", showing evacuation routes and day and night boundary lines for both the city and greater surrounding area. Probably a Cold War substitution, dated 1959, but book itself gives no indication, and lists original maps. Hardcover, very good, no DJ. Corners rubbed, some scuffing on rear board, 1 or 2 dogears, paper lightly age yellowed, but o/w tight, clean, crisp, unmarked and probably never read. Black cloth, "Handkerchief Map" endpapers, 1141 pp, stubs between blank rear endpapers. Travel; WPA; history; New Deal. Seller Inventory # 31995
