by California Literary Research; Joseph Gaer, editor

Condition: See description


San Francisco: State of California Emergency Relief Administration, 1930. Pamphlet. Three entries from a run, softbound pamphlets, each title complete in itself, accompanied by an explanation of the project on SERA letterhead and signed in the plate by Gaer. All three in roughly the same format: averaging twenty pages, they are mimeographed recto only from typewritten text, side-stapled into 8x5 inch cardstock wraps supplied with mimeo'd cover labels. #3's label is damaged, each wrapper is acidic and toned, mimeographing is late-generation, spotty but always legible. The three as a tiny lot with the cover letter. Joseph Gaer, Editor; SERA Project 2-F2-132 (3-F2-197). Index #4. From cover letter: "California Literary Research (SERA..) has prepared a series of indices of books [that are] now out of print and very difficult to obtain: and the original books are not indiced.. it is difficult to determine whether they contain specific references to material sought by the research student.." -- Editor is the same Joseph Gaer who published numerous labor history titles: a labor activist, worked with the CIO.
