CONDITION: VG- Please see pictures for cover markings. The founder of the Little Blue Books claimed the idea for an inexpensive series of paperbacks came to him when he was a teenager, after reading Oscar Wilde’s The Ballad of Reading Gaol on a Philadelphia park bench. Over a decade later, this child of JewishRussian immigrants, Emanuel Julius, was a writer for the largest circulation socialist weekly in the United States, the venerable Appeal to Reason published in Girard, Kansas. In 1916, he married a local banker, Marcet Haldeman. When they married, they joined their names: Haldeman-Julius. In early 1919, with Marcet’s money, Emanuel partnered with Louis Kopelin, editor of the Appeal, and they bought the company.

Books should be firmly pressed together but not wedged in tightly, which causes stress on the bindings. Shelves should not be exposed to direct sunlight and should be in a dry, insect-free location.
