No. 14,630: Worse! And More Of It! Schools, Socialism, Lynchings, Ministers, Catholics, Negroes, Revolution, England

Sykesville, MD: Francis B. Livesey, [ca 1905]. Eccentric broadside from the apparently indefatigable pamphleteer and libertarian rabble-rouser of Sykesville, Maryland, who reputedly authored, over the course of his long career, more than 20,000 letters to the editor on subjects as diverse as Women's Clubs, the Negro problem, Socialism, unemployment, political corruption, and public education. Whether all 20,000 letters were issued, as this one was, in broadside format is impossible to say; the current example is numbered 14,630, but OCLC finds only 6 examples of any Livesey broadside (and only a single holding for this one); none in Maryland institutions. Broadside, 17" x 5-12". Printed recto-only; text in single column beneath three-line headline; signed in type by author/publisher below text. Old folds; single, brief split at left margin (no loss of text); marginal toning; Very Good.

Price: $125.00
