The Bohemian Flats

Minneapolis: The University of Minnesota Press, (1941)? First edition. Hardcover. Near Fine / Near Fine. Pale green hardcovered volume, paper on boards, with blue paste-on lable to the front panel, lettered in white. Octavo, (ix), 52pp. Compiled by the Workers of the Writers' Program of the Work Projects Administration in the State of Minnesota, and sponsored by the Hennepin County Historical Society. Illustrated with photographs and line drawings. The date is a guess. Scharf states he had a copy with a previous owner inscription dated 1940. Whereas the Library of Congress dates the work to 1941. I went with the later date because the WPA Writers' Program Publication Catalogue of 1941 gives the date as 1941. Majority wins. One of the few WPA publications which was presented as a limited edition. This volume has a colophon stating that 1000 copies were printed and this copy is numbered 875. A very clean, bright and solid copy in the complete dust jacket showing minor wear to the head of the spine. Dykes, #151.

Price: $80.00
