1 All About Hawaii; Thrum's Hawaiian Annual 1950
Honolulu, Hawaii Hawaii Star Journal 1950 Soft Cover Very Good 
An ephemeral annual in great condition save a small loss of paper at both sides of lower spine. Tightly bound and clean as a whiste inside and out with much crispness to paper and to cover. Commemorates Hawaii's Diamond Jubilee and precedes its statehood. The front sections has a lot of Hawaiian history and there is much info later on the various islands and the sugar and pineapple industries. There is also some tourist material and ads for hotels and restaurants, but this is really about what Hawaii was like at mid-century. Photo illustrated in black and white. The book measures 5"x7" and has 352 pages. The only fault is wear to the very bottom of the spine with a small loss of paper at both edges. Otherwise it's tightly bound and clean as whistle inside and out. 352 pages.
