The Libertarian Handbook: 1973.

By Vincent McCaffrey and Mark Frazier, editors

Boston, Massachusetts: Avenue Victor Hugo , 1973. First printing. Original Wraps. Fine. Octavo, 8 1/4" tall, 108 pages, wire saddle stitch, stiff wraps. A fine (unread), clean, neat soft cover over all with a little shelf wear (from long storage); binding tight, paper white. A resource and information guide to the Libertarian movement circa 1973--a small press production published with limited resources by us (with all typos etc still intact!); this was the second of two editions. The 1972 issue, with mostly different content, is also presently being offered. Any other copies present on the internet are pirate editions (appropriate given the anarchists in their Libertarian movement at large) and were not authorized by this publisher. The Handbook was originally published with a cover price of $2. The current price (in good capitalist tradition) reflects the limited number of copies remaining.
