Unfinished Histories: Tales Of Aberdeen And Brown County



Mitchell, SD: South Dakota Writers' League, 1938. First edition. Wraps. Near Fine. Original illustrated wrappers. 58pp. Written by Workers of the Federal Writers' Project, Works Progress Administration in South Dakota. An American Guide Series publication. Illustrated throughout. This copy signed at the half-title, H.E. Beebe with the date of July, 1938. I can find no certain attribution but it is my surmise that H.E. Beebe was a writer involved in the South Dakota project and likely played a part in this volume's creation. His name does appear in another South Dakota publication, thanking him for his service but it is still too vague to make any certain attributions regarding "Unfinished Histories." I have another copy of this same title which also has his signature and a personal stamp with his name. The mystery remains! This copy shows only one minor crease to the bottom right corner of the front cover, else fine. It appears unopened and unread. Now quite scarce. Dykes, #323.
Price: $125.00
