Oregon Oddities; Early Days Railroads

Portland, Oregon: 1939. First edition. Wraps. Near Fine. Oregon Oddities was originally a collection of thirty two booklets compiled by The Oregon Writers' Project and Historical Records Survey of the Work Projects Administration of Oregon. Material in these booklets was assembled from files of the Oregon Writers' Project and Oregon Historical Survey and from the quarterlies of the Oregon Historical Society. Many of these booklets have dates but some do not. Early Day Railroads, the booklet offered here, is dated December 30, 1939 - 5pp. These works are extremely rare for even one example. This is a lovely example. These publications were typically distributed by mail. This copy bears the mailing address of Sara Wrenn, a prominent worker and author from the Oregon team. The Post Mark is dated January, 1940. Dykes, #272; Powell, #1318.

Price: $150.00
