Great Pirates: Little Blue Book No. 558

Publisher: Girard Kansas: Haldeman-Julius Co., 1924.
Paperbound, 12mo., soft blue paper wraps. 64pp. including several pages listing other LBB titles. Stories of some of the more notorious pirates including Philip Roach, John Gow, Henry Morgan, Captain Kidd, and others, as well as a section on women pirates. Finger makes the nice observation that "Pirates, generally speaking, did for themselves and on their own personal accounts and sometimes were hanged for doing those things for which they would have been praised and knighted had they done them in the name of patriotism." Discussing Francis Drake, he notes, "But Drake was also a pirate of the first water, burning, slaying, laying to waste as cheerfully as did Avery, or Lowther, or Blackbeard Teach." Among many exciting stories that of Mary Read, woman pirate, is certainly wilder than any fiction-writer's plot. Finger writes here with his usual open-minded perspective on history. Lyrics to a couple of well-known pirate songs are quoted here, too. Slight fading at edges of wraps, internally bright. LBB Paperbound 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall

How to Prepare Manuscripts: Little Blue Book No.1143

Publisher: Girard, Kansas: Haldeman-Julius, 1927.
Paperbound, stapled. Little Blue Book #1143, 32 pp. Things have not changed much in the last 70 years. The plight of editors remains the same, as Milburn indicates after observing mail arriving at Haldeman-Julius: "There, day after day, I saw the editors' mail cascade from strong cloth sacks. If there is any more disheartening spectacle in the world, I do not care to witness it while I'm young." Nor has much of anything else about the writing world altered: "A great multitude of people writing, writing, endlessly writing -- writing in city cellars and in lonely farm houses..it was a rare mail which brought anything but evidence that the amateur writer was the most child-like, the most gullible, the most addlepated creature in the world..the ones on whom the correspondence school and fake 'literary burueau' sharks grew round-bellied." Here's the REAL George Milburn handing out advice on manuscript format, submission procedures, etc. Cover faded, top right corner cover diagonally chipped, tiny corner chips to a few initial pages. Internal pages yellowed. Good. Paperbound Good 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall
