Charter for Freedom, Department of Liberty

by Walter, Florence

Condition: Near fine

San Francisco: [Grabhorn Press], 1942. No binding. Near fine. Quarto size, [4] pp. A rather scarce piece of Grabhorn ephemera, featuring a charming Christmas wish referencing the "Four Freedoms" speech by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, adding the "Freedom to Celebrate Christmas / in Security & Thankfulness." As of this writing, there are none online, and it is not found in the Grabhorn bibliography; we presume it is from the Grabhorn Press based on the OCLC entry and the author being Florence Walter, a San Francisco bookbinder and collector of Grabhorn Press material; she was a frequent visitor to the premises of the Grabhorn Press and would have easily requested them to print this Christmas greeting on her behalf. ___DESCRIPTION: One sheet folded once to make four pages, fore-edge uncut, printed on the front page in blue and black, 10 cent World War II savings stamp adhered inside a border of blue stars; quarto size (10" by 7.5"). ___CONDITION: Near fine, clean, with light toning to the spine, a few shallow creases to the edges, and very light spots of soiling to the rear page. ___CITATION: OCLC no. 931358713, which lists a single library holding (The Book Club of California). ___POSTAGE:  International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover costs; please inquire for details. ___Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.
