FreeP Collective Philadelphia: Freedom Press, Inc, 1971. A broken run of 39 issues of Philadelphia's most radical underground newspaper, which began in April 1968 at Temple Univ. as the Temple Free Press and changed names to the Philadelphia Free Press with the June 6, 1969 issue. The paper was founded to provide a voice for the most revolutionary students at Temple who found themselves censored by the administration. As Paul Lyons mentions in Divided We Fall: The Rise and Fall of the New Left in Philadelphia (2003), "those who dominated the "Free Press" escalated the rhetoric and began to argue for revolutionary Communism with a strong Third World flavor" (p. 105). The paper's content reflects this assertion with extensive coverage of Third World Liberation and anti-imperialist movements, although local and national liberation struggles were no less covered and championed. The FreeP Collective as it became known drew the ire of the Philadelphia political establishment as it increasingly criticized Frank Rizzo, the Philadelphia Police Department, and the treatment of the Black Panthers, the Young Lords, anti-war activists and other militant New Left activists. The paper's members were followed, harassed, raided and threatened with prison and worse and ultimately led to the deportation of Bill Biggins, a Canadian who was one of the paper's founders and most vocal critics. The paper ceased publication in 1973. An important source of information on the radical Left in Philadelphia and throughout the broader New Left momement during the late 1960s/early 1970s. Issues rarely surface in the trade. Issues are all tabloid format printed in color with some featuring centerfold posters; generally 12-20 pp, illus. Most are Near Fine with horizontal fold as distributed, although vol. 5, no. 10 has some severe chipping/shredding at the bottom.
The Rockwell Report

The Rockwell Report, April, 1967

[ROCKWELL, George Lincoln (ed.)] Dallas: National Socialist White People's Party, 1967. First edition. 4to., stapled wrappers (8 ½" x 11") printed in blue & black, 20 pp, illus. Light toning to wrappers, about Fine. Issues rarely emerge in commerce. A single issue of the American Nazi Party's monthly publication named after its founder, George Lincoln Rockwell. This issue published from Dallas under the Party's new name, the National Socialist White People's Party, which it adopted in Jan., 1967. The feature article, "New Party Phase: Attack!" compares the situation in Germany in the interwar period with that of America during the 1960s. Other content includes a report, including photographs, of a riot outside of San Quenton between George Lincoln Rockwell and "hundreds of the most disgusting human horrors in filthy beards, filthier clothes, rags, etc. carrying 'love' signs and moaning 'We Shall Overcome'" who were protesting the execution of a black man (which Rockwell was celebrating); an article on the ACLU; a satirical piece titled "The Botched Batch" on the creation of blacks by a disgruntled scientist in heaven; and many smaller blurbs on Jews and blacks with racist illustrations throughout. The publication concludes with the Party's new slogan, "White Power!" The Rockwell Report was first issued in Oct., 1961 and was later published by the Dallas chapter. It ended with the July, 1967 issue, with the promise of a new publication called "White Power News," which likely refers to its tabloid newspaper "White Power.".

The Key to Freedom: The World's Present Deadly Peril. Economy of the World in the Hands of the Zionist International Bankers..

Union, New Jersey: Christian Educational Assocation, 1957. First edition. Large format publication (17 ½" x 23") printed in black, red & pink unfolding to feature a 35" x 23" chart. Some dark offsetting to the first page, some faint soiling at the center crease, old horizontal and vertical folds, but a VG copy overall. No record for this publication in OCLC. Scarce. [SINGERMAN 0789] A verbose and visual anti-Semitic publication featuring many of the motifs regularly employed by Conde McGinley's Christian Educational Association. The first page discusses the Jewish role behind Communism and includes a paper label affixed to the top featuring a speech by Winston Churchill in which he lambastes the "international atheistic Jews" responsible for the Russian Revolution. The two inner pages are a large wall chart showing various powerful Jews (with photographs) and their influence over the United States' armed forces, immigration policy, the press, the U.N., health, education and welfare, the economy, the State Dept., and the labor movement. All figures/departments appear to emanate from three central figures: Sidney J. Weinberg, Bernard Baruch and Max Rabb. Bernard Baruch is described as the 'Most Powerful Man of World' [sic] and is behind "the most evil PLOT the world has ever known FOR THE ENSLAVEMENT OF MAKIND BY gathering the money and economy of the world in the hands of INTERNATIONAL ZIONIST BANKERS by a cleverly concealed war machine, financing, idealizing, manipulating, promoting war in all part of the world by quietly and persistantly promoting legislation and taxes to enslave and tie the hands of people and government." The final page reprints extracts from the Protocols of the Elders of Zion and discusses how recent U.S. Presidents have been hoodwinked and manipulated by Zionists to carry out the Protocols. A short literature list includes other similar titles published or distributed by Christian Educational Association.
