Korstian, Associate Silviculturist, Appalachian Forest Experiment Station. Raleigh, N.C.: State of North Carolina Dept. of Conservation and Development, Division of Forestry, 1926. 26 pages, [4] leaves of plates : illustrations ; 25 cm.

First edition. Economic Paper (North Carolina. Department of Conservation and Development) No. 57. Original printed wrappers. A very good copy. Includes a laid in typed letter signed by Wade H. Phillips, Director of the Department of Conservation and Development, on official letterhead.

This letter says in part: "The enclosed copy of Economic Paper #57...has recently been received from the printer. The object of its publication is to secure closer cooperation between the Manufacturers and the Forestry Division of this Department."

The Introduction in the pamphlet itself states: "The main purpose of this paper, after briefly considering the history of the development in the South, is to discuss the broad economic question of the supply of raw material in relation to the probable future demand for furniture woods, and the more important processes by which an adjustment between the two may be brought about in the South."
