Another Calendar and Some Unique Books

2 December 2013

While looking for a door for the room, Jenny and I stumbled across some more oddities.

First is a collection of pocket books published between 1922 and 1943 by Emanuel Haldeman-Julius, a Jewish-American socialist writer, atheist thinker, and social reformer. Apparently there are still fans and collectors of these things.  There were a lot more books than the 12 we picked up, but we snagged the ones that sounded the most interesting:

  • Is War Inevitable?
  • Are Americans Standardized?
  • The Fraud of Spiritualism
  • Science Versus Religion as a Guide to Life
  • Freethought and Agnosticism
  • How to Become a United States Citizen
  • The Conflict Between Science and Religion
  • The Origin and Development of the Atomic Theory
  • Rules for Success in Business
  • A History of Evolution
  • Racial Intermarriage in the United States
  • The Millennium: A Comedy of the Year 2000 Volume II
  • Two Masterly Ghost Stories

I also picked up a Nebraska Eighth Grade Examination Question Book which was published in 1933 and belonged to a Charlotte Stephan, who wrote answers to the questions all over the inside of the book.

Finally, I found another Travelers calendar that’s in very good condition.  This one is from 1943.

Total Spent Today: ~$51
