How to Be A Leader of Others [Appeal Pocket Series No. 112]

Girard, Kansas: Haldeman-Julius, [1921]. 32mo, saddle-stapled in blue wraps, two staple binding. Gibbs 112b, noted variation 1, in the APS binding.

This anonymous entry in the Little Blue Books was one of E. Haldeman-Julius's "Morgue titles", books which he withdrew from the series after early dissatisfaction with the text.

"For there are some books in The Morgue, about which I now propose to tell, which were very good sellers—and yet they were withdrawn. I refer to a series of a. dozen or so books dealing with the improvement of the mind, the personality, and that sort of thing. How to Strengthen Mind and Memory was the title of one of these books; How to Be a Leader of Others was another. I withdrew these books because they were false. They did not give the facts, but drew rosy pictures, fostered erroneous views of life—in short, these books were nothing but bunk. They were killed, all of them." - E. Haldeman-Julius, The First Hundred Million, p. 122.

Lower tip soundly bumped throughout, some light rubbing to crown, else a sturdy very good example of a scarce title in the series. Item #30346
