The International Jew: The World's Foremost Problem [complete in 4 vols.]

The International Jew: The World's Foremost Problem [complete in 4 vols.]

[CAMERON, William J.] [Dearborn, Mich.]: [The Dearborn Publishing Co.], 1922. A well-preserved, ex-library set of Henry Ford's The International Jew, which Singerman describes as the "most well-known American contribution to the literature of antisemitism." Beginning as a series of articles in "The Dearborn Independent", each of the four volumes was published independently beginning in 1920 under the direction of Ford's editor, William J. Cameron. Increasingly influenced by the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, introduced to Ford by White Russian emigres such as Boris Brasol, The International Jew investigated the pernicious influence of Jews on American culture, and influenced, not only future generations of American anti-Semites, but also Adolf Hitler and members of his burgeoning party in Germany. As Leo Ribuffo points out in his article, "Henry Ford and 'The International Jew'," (1980) throughout the four volumes, a series of dichotomies distinguished Jews from Gentile Americans, including "making and getting, morality and sensuality, fair trade and chicanery, 'creative labor' and exploitation, and heroism and cowardice" (p. 453). Ribuffo further notes that up to 200,000 copies were printed of each edition and sent widely to influential citizens such as clergymen, bankers, and stockbrokers. In our case, three of the four volumes were sent to the Watkinson Library, Trinity College, Hartford, Connecticut, and still retain the complimentary slip from The Dearborn Publishing Co. addressed, "To the Librarian: This copy of (insert volume name) is for your reference library and reading table. Please accept it with our compliments." The book provoked both support and opposition, the latter building until Ford was forced to repudiate The International Jew and issue an insincere apology in 1927. Sets are exceedingly uncommon, especially in hardcover; most copies were issued in wrappers and are typically seen tattered when available.  Four 12mo. volumes bound in green cloth and lettered in black, 235; 255; 256; 246 p. All ex-library with vol. 1 from Hadley Free Library and the subsequent three volumes from Trinity College in CT. Only vol. 1 has faint call number to the spine, else no other external markings on any volume. All have library bookplates to the front pastedowns with withdrawn stamps; no other library markings in volumes 2-4 with vol. 1 having a nearly empty check out slip in rear with diagonal pocket affixed to rear pastedown. Vol. 1 with some dampstaining to lower margins but not generally affecting text. Vols. 2-4 in about Near Fine condition despite the bookplates and small stamps, vol. 1 Good+ only. SINGERMAN, 0103, 0117-0118, 0132.
Who Wants War? And Why

Who Wants War? And Why

Mount Vernon, Washington: The Concord Press, 1939. A small two-sided poster that warns of the Jewish attempt to instigate another world war for the benefit of International Jewry. The recto features excerpts from a 1921 interview with Henry Ford who discusses Jewish involvement in WWI as fulfillment of the Protocols. This is followed by excerpts from Zionists in Jewish publications to support the aforementioned conclusion. The recto then includes a quote from Bernard M. Baruch on destroying Germany's barter system followed by an editorial comment: "Here emerges the typical huckstering Jew avidly envisioning an opportunity for transforming Christian blood into gold..." Also included are other Ford quotations from 1938-39 and a facsimile reproduction of a handbill circulated in Britain that contends that the British Army is led, fed and clad by Jews. Although we were unable to determine the creator of this poster, one possibility is Judge N. W. Rogers, whose pamphlet, Swindle: The Federal Reserve "Our Misfortune" was also printed by Concord Press the previous year. The flyer's admonition to "Read 'The Protocols of the Elders of Zion' was included on other Rogers propaganda and he was very active as an anti-Semitic propagandist during this time (although far from the only one). Not much is known about The Concord Press or who operated it, but like Pete Stahenberg's National Press Association, it was an active interwar printer of anti-Semitic propaganda. Offset printed on both sides on thin stock (9 ¾" x 12 ½"). A horizontal crease and some faint foxing, but a Near Fine example of a fragile item. Not found catalogued in OCLC. Scarce.
The Jewish Victory At Berne (Side Lights on the Verdict)

The Jewish Victory At Berne (Side Lights on the Verdict)

London: Christian Aryan Protection League, 1935. A flyer issued by the Christian Aryan Protection League following the verdict in the landmark Berne trial in Switzerland, in which the Protocols of the Elders of Zion was deemed a forgery. The flyer describes the farcical trial presided over by a "Marxist" judge and the many "tricks" used by Jews to secure a favorable verdict. But, the author claims that the trial had the unintended consequence of uniting Christian Aryans the world over. The Christian Aryan Protection League was founded in London by Mary Karadja, a Swedish princess and occultist, whose correspondence with other supporters of the defendants figures prominent in trial archives. Ironically, her son, Constantin Karadja, became a noted, lawyer, scientist, and Romanian diplomat who saved 51,000 Jews from Germany, France, Greece, Hungary, Italy and Romania during WWII (van Dijk, "On diplomats during the Holocaust: the case of the Romanian Constantin Karadja," p. [11]). The Berne Trial took place from 1933-1935 after the Swiss Federation of Jewish Communities and Bernese Jewish Community sued the Swiss National Front and a number of individuals for distributing the Protocols. The defendants were financed in their defense by Nazi agents who sent Col. Ulrich Fleischhauer as an expert witness. Although the fine imposed on the defendants was nominal, the international attention paid to the trial further damaged the credibility of the Protocols and those who promoted its authenticity. A single 8 ½" x 11" sheet printed on both sides. Printed in London by W. Whitehead who printed much of the output of British fascist organizations. A few closed tears, bottom corner missing a tiny sliver, VG overall. We find three copies in OCLC (Michigan State, the Univ. of Fl., and National Library of New Zealand), and note other copies at the Univ. of Sheffield & the Wiener Library (a German language variant). Not in SINGERMAN.
Jewry Über Alles

Jewry Über Alles, Vol. 1, No. 5, June, 1920

[BANISTER, Joseph (ed.)?] London: The Judaic Publishing Co., Ltd, 1920. A scarce single issue of the Britons' anti-Semitic journal, which commenced publication in February, 1920, and changed names to the "Hidden Hand" in September. Although no editor is listed and most of the content is unsigned, researcher Nick Toczek maintains that Joseph Banister was responsible for much of the early editorial work (p. 83-84, Haiters, Baiters and Would-Be Dictators). This issue features a cover illustration by "Goy" featuring a Jew with his tentacled hands reaching all parts of the globe, as well as the cartoon insert by the same illustrator. Content for this issue includes an article on Lloyd George's pact with Lenin and Trotsky; Notes of the Month, which includes small news items on Jews; Part II. of "Bolshevism alias Communism: The party played by the Jews in Revolution" by G. P. Mudge; news on Jewish activities around Europe, including an ominous report on German anti-Semitism by a German Jew who writes that the sentiment expressed is that Germany's restoration can only come with the extermination of the Jews (emphasis in article); "The Sassooneries" on the French Jewish family; "Jews and the Christian Symbol" by Zadoc; a letter on the last page from the "English Friends of Denmark" League, which criticizes not only Jews, but Germans as well; and a report from a Britons meetings, in which Vice-President, John Henrik Clarke spoke on the League of Nations as a Jew-devised organization "devised to make the attainment of the Christian ideal impossible." Wrappers (7 ½" x 9 ¾") bound by a single staple, which is oxidized, 8 p. Some rubbing, one small moisture spot to the top, but otherwise a well-preserved copy of a scarce issue. Less than a dozen institutions with scattered holdings in OCLC; UC Davis, the British Library, Cambridge and Oxford all appear to have this issue.
The Suppressed Statement of Major General George V. H. Moseley

The Suppressed Statement of Major General George V. H. Moseley, before the House of Representatives Committee on Un-American Activities, June 1, 1939

[MOSELEY, Major General George Van Horn] Mount Vernon, Washington: The Concord Press, 1939. A small two-sided poster reprinting Major-General George Van Horn Moseley's testimony before HUAC in which he condemned organized Jewry's role in spreading Communism and the dual allegiance of American Jews. Far right publisher and demagogue, Gerald L. K. Smith, later reprinted Moseley's speech in pamphlet form and argued that Moseley's statement was "so tough, so true, and so terrific" that the Committee forbade it from being recorded for posterity. Included in Moseley's testimony was correspondence between Moseley and Brigadier General Walter A. DeLamater who was writing on behalf of the Jewish New York banking firm Kuhn, Loeb & Company who were troubled by Moseley's statement about their involvement in supporting Communist subversion. Moseley concluded his testimony by suggesting that Congress investigate the American Jewish Committee, the American Jewish Congress, B'nai B'brith and the Jewish Labor Committee and criticized the Committee's un-American witch hunt. The poster was later exhibited in a 1942 Investigation of Un-American Propaganda Activities in the United States. Offset printed on both sides on thin stock (10" x 13"). A horizontal crease and some minor creasing, but a Near Fine example of a fragile item. Two copies found in OCLC (MSU & National Library of New Zealand). Scarce.
Buy Gentile - Patronize Only Christian Merchants

Buy Gentile – Patronize Only Christian Merchants

[BRITTON, Frank] Inglewood, California: American Nationalist, [195-?]. A tract in comic form that maintains that "the main street of virtually every major city in the U.S. has been taken over by hordes of Eastern-European Jews, who are slowly but surely driving Gentile business men into bankruptcy." An Uncle Sam figure explains to a concerned citizen how the Jews have taken over most of the theatres, clothing, jewelry and department stores and that boycotting Jewish businesses and buying Gentile is the way to combat their takeover. This propaganda was courtesy of Frank Lollar Britton (1920-2010), who published the racist and anti-Semitic, "American Nationalist," and directed the New Confederates organization, which engaged in boycotting Jewish businesses. He was an alleged protégé of the notorious far right figure, Gerald L. K. Smith, and his propaganda mirror's that of Smith's own Christian Nationalist Crusade in both tone and format. Best known as the author of the widely circulated book, Behind Communism, in which he sought to establish the link between Jews and Communism, Britton was sentenced to a stretch at San Quentin for attempting to bribe two San Francisco police officers following a bar fight in 1961. A white glossy sheet (8 ¾" x 6 ¼") printed in red and blue. Horizontal fold for mailing, else Fine. No record for this tract in OCLC, although a record for a variant published by Russel Veh's American White Nationlist Party is found at UC Davis.
Ve Vant Var [We Want War] - Propaganda sticker

Ve Vant Var [We Want War] – Propaganda sticker

[German-American Bund?], 1941. A small sticker featuring a Star of David with an accentuated 'V' and the slogan 'Ve Vant Var'. These stickers were distributed by Bundists, fascists and isolationists in opposition to the "V is for Victory" campaign, which they believed was a plot by the international bankers (Jews) to capitalize on another world war. One group who distributed the stickers was the Friends of Progress, a Los Angeles-based anti-Semitic organization founded by Robert Noble and Ellis Jones. In a 1945 court case against members of the group for for violating the Subversive Organization Registration Act, witnesses stated that the stickers were sold by the bundle at Friends of Progress meetings, that member James McBride had distributed them, and that the sticker had been seen on the desk of West Coast Bund leader, Hermann Schwinn. In the Nov., 1941 issue of The Beacon Light, American fascist, William Kullgren, published a long article on the V campaign and explained it thusly: "This 'V' symbol stands for getting America into war, and all that implies: staggering taxes, strikes, suppression of free speech, free press and civil liberties, along with panics, depression, investment losses, bank failures, etc., all punitive measures to either bring on war or revolution or both. When the storm breaks, somebody will wish they lived in Madagascar." This latter threat was in reference to the early Nazi plan to forcibly relocate the European Jewish population to the island of Madagascar. Kullgren mentions the 'Ve Vant Var' slogan in his article. The sticker measures 2 ½" x 3 ¼" with gummed back and appears never to have been applied. Fine. No record found in OCLC, although copies exist at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum & the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust. A scarce surviving remnant.
