Our South American Trip by AH Brawner JR, illustrations by Curtiss Cowan, MCMXL (c.1940), hardbound, 7x10, 50 pgs, privately published. This is an interesting and scarce account of a 1940 journey that began in San Mateo, California. It was written by the 17-year-old son of AH Brawner, treasurer of the WP Fuller [paint] Co. The extended journey undertaken by this wealthy family included airplane flights as well as ship voyages with stops at numerous locations in Central and South America. The author compares areas of devastation (such as earthquake-ravaged Lima) to the ongoing destruction of European cities by the Nazi forces under Hitler. An extended portion of the trip was spent in Rio de Janeiro - they had reservations to see Carmen Miranda perform at the Urca Casino although she had to cancel at the last minute due to illness. An unusual look at travel experiences written from a youth’s perspective that includes the actual names of hotels, ships, airlines (Pan-American) and important people encountered along the way.

Condition: Very Good condition with soil and toning to paper label on the bark-cloth ? covered boards, faint tanning to some page margins and only very minor interior soil.
