Philadelphia: Penn Publishing, 1927. First Edition, Remainder Issue. Green cloth boards; dustjacket. One of an unspecified number of publisher's presentation copies, with tipped-on label bearing author's signature to front pastedown. Remainder issue, in Grosset & Dunlap dustjacket but with correct publisher's slug to spine, title page, and copyright page (jacket not supplied; as issued). Endpapers a little grubby, mild tanning to text margins, still VG or better in a very nice example of the scarce dustwrapper.
A later work by this Rideout author whose early books, infused with a zeal for socialist reform, were well-received by critics and radical activists alike in the years prior to WW1. The present title, an investigation of religious hypocrisy in the Episcopal Church, clearly met with a limited audience, given the fact that even the publisher's presentation copies had to be remaindered! Quite scarce, and seldom seen in any sort of jacket. HANNA 1972.
