Description: New York: Oxford University Press, 1948. Hardcover; Fourth Printing. DJ with light edgewear and light chipping. Boards with light wear to extremities and with a bit of discoloration. Endpapers a bit darkened and with brown spotting to rear endpapers. ; This guide does much to dispel the image of West Virginia as a state of moonshine and mountains, containing as it does essays on history, industry, mining, etc. The essay on labor was felt by some to be too sympathetic to strikers, and Governor Holt threatened to halt publication, but the Project simply waited until he had left office, at which point publication went ahead with no problems. A handsome and tight copy with map in rear pocket and the beautiful photogravures ; Amercian Guide Series; B&W Photographs; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; xxxi, 559 pages. Very Good in Very Good- dust jacket.
