Booklets 1-9 and 11 of The Decasseres Books, all published in 1936. The booklets are in fair-good condition. Booklets No. 1 and 2 have the most wear, with chipping and loss around the edges, #1 also has a sticker scar on the front cover. The other 8 booklets all have varying degrees of chipping and edgewear. Some of the books still have the loose ad flyer for the set (of 12) tucked inside the front cover. Some of the book blocks are pulling away from the interior of the spines but all are holding together well. These booklets are scarce at all, finding 10 of them at once is surprising! Benjamin DeCasseres (sometimes De Casseres) was a Sephardic New Yorker, journalist and writer, who greatly admired Nietzsche and hyper-individualism, yet who decried both capitalism and socialism. These scarce booklets put forth some of his unusual philosophy. He was read and admired by H. L. Mencken, Jack London and Eugene O'Neill. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall
