One Thousand [1000] Homosexuals: Conspiracy of Silence, or Curing and Deglamorizing Homosexuals

By [LGBTQ+] [CONVERSION THERAPY] BERGLER, Edmund

Paterson, NJ: Pageant Publishers, 1959. First Edition. Hardcover. Lay treatise on conversion therapy by a Freudian psychoanalyst who was among the most publicly visible, if not most influential, opponents of homosexuality in the decade of the Fifties. Bergler took an aggressive approach to conversion, asserting that he could "cure" patients by "stripping the glamor from the disease...by measuring the myth against the clinical facts which prove that homosexuality is a disease and is curable...there is no more glamor in homosexuality than there is in, let's say, a case of typhoid fever..." (from jacket copy). Octavo (21.5cm). Red cloth boards, lettered in black on spine; dustjacket; 249pp. Tight, Near Fine copy in lightly edge-rubbed jacket.

My First Days in the White House

By [RADICAL RIGHT] LONG, Huey Pierce

Harrisburg, PA: Telegraph Press, 1935. First Edition. Hardcover. Long's posthumously-published political fantasy, imagining a world in which he has won the 1936 Presidential race and begun instituting his populist reform agenda. Long-form fiction proved a perhaps over-elaborate vehicle for campaign propaganda (especially given Long's target audience), and My First Days in the White House did not sell well. Sales were no doubt further curtailed as a result of Long's assassination in September of 1935, one month after formally announcing his Presidential ambitions. Attractive copies are uncommon. Octavo (21cm); red textured cloth boards, with titles stamped in black on spine and front cover; dustjacket; frontispiece, [8],146,[6]pp; illus. Neat, contemporary owners name to front endpaper, crown gently nudged, else Near Fine. Dustjacket is unclipped (priced $1.50), spine-sunned and edgeworn, with a few tiny nicks to extremities, two small losses to crown, and two larger chips along upper edge of rear panel (none affecting lettering); Very Good.

The prolific Cooper's best-known book, a dystopian future-world fantasy depicting a United States under the rule of a separatist feminist matriarchy, in which heterosexual sex is punishable by death and men are relegated to a servant's role. Predicts by 20 years the spirit, if not the letter, of Rush Limbaugh's coining of the word "Feminazi." A classic and lasting contribution to the field of mysogynistic literature. Paperback Original. 12mo (17cm); original pictorial wraps, all edges stained yellow; 188pp. Trivial bit of scuffing at top of spine, else a superlative unread copy, with edge-stain bright and even to all edges; no reading creases or other evidence of use.

Archive of 15 pieces of printed ephemera relating to the 1926 General Strike in Great Britain, including all eight issues of Winston Churchill's anti-labor newspaper "The British Gazette"

By [LABOR HISTORY - GREAT BRITAIN] CHURCHILL, Winston Spencer (et al)

London [and elsewhere]: Various Publishers, (1926). Important archive of primary documents relating to the 1926 General Strike in Great Britain which, though brief and a failure from the syndicalist point of view, would nonetheless be the only General Strike in British history. The event also established a pattern for Tory suppression of radical labour, including the use of "emergency" legislative measures and the mass distribution of propaganda through state-run media. Ironically, the strike also presaged a massive sweep to power of the Labour Party in the years immediately following, a wave which was at least in part a response to the repressive measures employed by the Conservatives against the Trades Union Congress in the General Strike. Of primary interest here is the complete run of eight issues of The British Gazette, a government propaganda sheet edited (and including numerous contributions by) Winston Churchill, who was at this time Chancellor of the Exchequer. Depending upon one's point of view, the Gazette marked something of a low-point in Churchill's career: though it claimed to be filling a journalistic void created by striking newspaper workers, Churchill's paper was more or less a pure exercise in disinformation, filled with intentional inaccuracies intended to build public sentiment against the strikers and to demoralize participants in the strike. Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin was said to have given Churchill the Gazette job "...to keep him busy, and to keep him from doing worse things" (see John M. Davidson, Memoirs of a Conservative); the newspaper's prevarications so galled professional journalists that one was moved to write: "One of the worst outrages which the country had to endure - and to pay for - in the course of the strike, was the publication of the British Gazette. This organ, throughout the seven days of its existence, was a disgrace alike to the British Government and to British journalism" (Kingsley Martin in The New Statesman, May 15, 1926). Also included here are several other private news sheets, indicative of the hunger for information felt by British populace suddenly without any reliable source of news; and a broadside, without imprint but likely issued by HMSO as a prospectus of sorts announcing the imminent publication of the Gazette. Fifteen pieces including printed periodicals and ephemera. Contents generally fresh and well-preserved; a few with original folds from distribution; Very Good. The entirety housed in a custom folding cloth chemise and quarter-morocco slipcase. Includes: • The British Gazette. Vol 1, no 1 - Vol 1, no 8 (all issued). Lon: HMSO, May 5- May 13, 1926. All issues in excellent state of preservation, with slight tenderness (but no tears or loss) at the horizontal and vertical mailing folds. • Strike Bulletin. Bradford: TheYorkshire Observer. 2 issues. [no. 1], May 5, 1926 & no. 6, May 11, 1926. Mimeographed sheets, corner stapled; 5pp + 6pp. Horizontal folds at bottom 2", whether from storage or distribution uncertain. "Cessation of work by the whole Technical and Labouring staff of "The Yorkshire Observer" - without notice, and in flagrant disregard of their contracts of service - has made it necessary for us to present these small sheets instead of a normal newspaper." • London Daily Express. 2 issues. Nos. 8126-27 (May 12-13, 1926); 1 + 4pp. Both issues severely abbreviated due to work stoppages. • Mayfair Bulletin. Giving the Latest Strike, Home & Foreign News. 14th May, 1926. Lon: April Showers, Ltd. Mimeographed on pink paper, corner stapled, with horizontal folds from distribution. • Broadside: Emergency Bulletin! Strike to Continue - No prospect of Early Settlement. Sans imprint. Letterpress, recto-only; ca 26 x 21cm (10" x 8"); type in single column below double rule. Announces a number of emergency measures to replace striking transportation, newspaper and dairy workers, including the pending appearance of The British Gazette.
