Morgan, Hal & Andreas Brown, Prairie Fires and Paper Moons: the American Photographic Postcard, 1900-1920, Boston, David R. Godine, 1981, stated first edition, oblong 8vo (8.25" x 9.5"), HB, black cloth boards w/ gilt titles & blind embossed & gilt illus in black color-illus dj, NF / NF. Light shelfwear.

xv + 192pp. Foreword by John Baskin. Profuse illustrations of photographic postcards from the beginning of the twentieth century; with Appendix, "Methods of Dating Photographic Postcards." The authors attribute the possible proliferation of paper moon photo postcards in this period to popular songs like "Moonbeams" 1906, "Shine on Harvest Moon" 1908, and "By the Light of the Silvery Moon" 1909.

Lovely publication and particularily so to collectors of RPPCs.    [Book ID # 1560]
