With time on our hands during the Coronavirus lockdown, we are reviewing the prices of some of our older stock and adjusting prices of books to ensure that they are the most attractive offering in the marketplace, as it is a reality of the antiquarian market for books that less expensive and mid-level material the trend has been inexorably downward, to the chagrin of booksellers and to the benefit of collectors.  Consequently, we have slashed prices anywhere between 20 percent and 60 percent of these books we have had listed for five years or more.  So we hope that anyone visiting the site might find something that might have become overpriced but now legitimately qualifies as a bargain.

Anti-Catholic Nativist screed. 24mo. 133 by 76 mm. 48 pp. The booklet was purporting to present the ritual for a secretive organization "SAM". In fact, the document is a fiction created to advance the position of the Dollar Times. SAM was probably based on the "Order of the Star Spangled Banner" whose members were known as the "Know Nothings" because the members would assert they knew nothing when asked about the secret order. Since the actual Order was closely aligned with the Dollar Times, what is presented in this document may be very close to the actual rituals. Heavy dampstain on wrap cover. Soiling, light to heavy, throughout. The booklet is fragile and needs gentle handling.

Price = 300.00 USD
