Book Details


New York: Greenberg Publishers, 1936. First Edition, First Printing. A strong contemporary voice in opposition to President Roosevelt's domestic economic policies. While not doubting FDR's good intentions, this stinging critique of New Deal policies clearly argues that bureaucracy and over-regulation had already prolonged the Great Depression by 1936. From the front cover: "Under the leadership of Roosevelt, America has smoked economic opium, has seen beautiful visions and dreamed phantasmagorical dreams, but they are wholly without substance and will melt as mist when the sun rises on the morning after.” Hardcover with dust jacket, 132 pages.

8vo., xii, 132pp.; VG/VG; spine red with white lettering; bound in red cloth over boards; dust jacket protected with a mylar covering, price uncut; jacket has a few short closed tears, minor edge rubs and wear; minor browning to text block; Publisher's notice of price and publication date stamped on ffep; ; shelved case 1.
