Gift of Laughter
(n.p.), Pennsylvania Railroad, (1943). The first separate appearance of this story by the Nobel Prize winner, first published in The American Magazine, with the title "Mrs. Barclay's Christmas Present." This is one of a set of 15 titles published by the Pennsylvania Railroad for traveling members of the armed services in November, 1943. 3" x 4". Fine in stapled wrappers. Similar to, but smaller than and apparently scarcer than, the Armed Forces Editions one usually sees from the Second World War. [#034852] SOLD
