Northampton County Guide

Bethlehem, PA: Times Publishing Co, (1939). First edition. Hardcover. Near Fine. Original tan buckram cloth, lettered and decorated in dark brown. Small octavo, 246pp. Written and Compiled by the Federal Writers' Project, Work Projects Administration, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. An American Guide Series volume. Folding map in pocket affixed to the interior rear board. Northampton County map to the front endpapers. Illustrated throughout. A very clean, bright and solid copy. This is an extremely clean, bright and attractive copy. This volume without a dust jacket and I'm beginning to think it was not issued with one. With a recent acquisition of over 500 FWP books, virtually all of them with jackets, it was unusual that several of the smaller publishers of Pennsylvania centered books did not have jackets. Twice might be co-incidental but more than that makes me think they were issued without. I can find no examples and no mention in any source or earlier sale. Powell, #1396.
