First separate publication of this syndicated Steinbeck wartime column, reprinted for this ephemeral guide to the third "Back the Attack" war bond drive on the Washington Mall, Sept. 9th-26th 1943. Pamphlet opens to show map of the grounds with illustration to rear page and Steinbeck's essay to remaining side. Not in Goldstone and Payne. Not in Morrow. Not in Holmes. OCLC locates one copy (Cornell). We find none in trade or at auction. Apparently unrecorded. It is the very model of a modern major rarity.
