by [WPA - California]: Hinkel. Edgar J.; William E. McCann, and Marie Holden
Oakland: Sponsored by Alameda County Library, 1938. Three volumes. ,x,447,447a; ,376,376a- b; ,306 leaves. Quarto. Uniform slightly later green cloth. Mimeographed typescript, printed on rectos only. Near fine, with the bookplate in each volume of California bookman, William Wreden. The first component of this massive and pioneering project, "produced on a Works Progress Administration Project - Administration Project 165-03-7308 - Area Serial 0803-1008... Work Project 6463." Several subsequent components were issued, including CRITICISM OF CALIFORNIA LITERATURE (2 vols, 1940) and BIOGRAPHIES OF CALIFORNIA AUTHORS (2 vols, 1942). As might be expected, well-represented in OCLC institutional holdings; however, this work is rather uncommon in commerce. While noting its occasional errors and omissions, Baird & Greenwood acknowledge the significance of this early effort toward the compiling of their 1971 ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY ..., noting their reliance on Hinkel's own annotated set (see, p.xi of their work). OCLC: 3450358. (Inventory #: WRCLIT76065)
