Brooklyn: Remington Publishing, n.d.. First Edition. 12mo. Black cloth spine over brown cardstock boards, hand-sewn and decorated. Light edgewear and scuffing. Boards attached to cloth tape of spine, but not to sewn text block, apparently as constructed. Typescript with hand annotations and corrections in pen and pencil. Illustrated with tipped-in photographs, repurposed magazine clippings, and pencil drawings. Very good. (Item ID: 23024)

Hand-made and -illustrated memoir of the author's early childhood in the 1920s and '30s, told in the third person and apparently completed as a school project (the author's age at publication is not specified.) Recounts the youthful seafaring exploits of her Norwegian grandfather ("While at sea he was struck by lightening and fell from the mast into the hold of the ship") and dwells on the "good qualities of [Scandinavian] races from which we come." The final chapter, "The Future," looks to high school and after, considering possible careers for the author as a nurse or teacher. A charming folk book.
