The Devil's Book Agent Arthur Desmond Presents: Radical Books—For or Against ANYTHING! Vol. I.
Pamphlets and Books collected from the vaults of Thurland & Thurland, The House of Gowrie, and The Gold Coast Book Store.
Remember, "BOOKS ARE TRUE FRIENDS."
Titled as advertized by Arthur Desmond:
Not for 200 years has a book appeared in the English language that contains more thought-thrills, startling truths, and daring explanations of the eternal verities of life, than the
“THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO MALFEW SEKLEW.”
Have your Ego X-Rayed and be saved from 6000 illusions, delusions and confused conclusions.
If so, read the “Gospel According to Malfew Seklew” and find out that the missing link in the human progress has been discovered; the remedy for higher civilization has been found.
This book, “The Smasher of All Shams, illusions, Delusions, Confusions and cankerous Conclusions” will teach you the Supermen. It will acquaint you with the fundamental Laws of Nature: “The Seven Laws That Govern Mankind; The Seven Wonders of the EGO; The Thirteen Affirmations of Supermanity; The Trinities That Mould Mankind” and will give you and index to every man’s mind and actions.
The lecture is a searching, scathing review of a book whose author Mr. Brewer classes as a tiger from the jungles, “not a pretty toy tiger, such as still may be found in the mountains of Bengal, but a genuine old saber-toothed tiger of the Pliocene age.”
"In daily life, we are often reminded that our heredity runs back among the beasts of prey. Scratch a man deep enough—sometimes a pin will do—and we find the tiger, fox, jackal or hog, as the case may be. But we never see that past in its entirety—a flash of claw or fang, the glare of a startled eye, or a smothered growl from lips attuned to prayer—is about the limit of our social retrospection; and so it was with great interest and pleasure that I read what my Pliocene brother had to say about modern life and its historical development."
A lucid presentation by Charles Louis Brewer of the old and new conceptions of the idea that “Might makes Right.”
“Might is Right Inc.,” articles and letters from workers incorporating the writings of Ragnar Redbeard. (Arthur Desmond, 1859-1929)

All progress—whether physical, mental, moral, spiritual or financial—is based on LAW. And he who wins success in any line does so because he has followed the LAW or LAWS pertaining to his business, whether he does it consciously or unconsciously.
Some of the great “Captains of Industry” who have won marvellous success in financial affairs, and for whom we have no great admiration, are miserable failures as moral and spiritual beings. But they have won great Financial Success because they concentrated on that alone to the exclusion of all other kinds.
What the most of us want is all round success, but we must remember that no one can be an all round success without Financial Independence. No matter how much good a person may want to do, he is handicapped by a lack of money. All the air-castles he has built; all the beautiful plans he has created; all the cherished desires to do good go unfulfilled because there is no money to complete them.
But these air-castles can become real buildings; these plans can become realities; these great desires can be fulfilled. The question is “how to do it?”
The writer has seen the need for several years among Advanced Thought circles, of a book to answer this question. In his own life he has found that Financial Success is not a matter of grind and rush and fight and struggle. It is a matter of getting in harmony with the LAW and then following that LAW to its logical conclusion. He has placed this information in the book “THE LAW OF FINANCIAL SUCCESS.” In it he states the LAW, shows how to get in harmony with it, and then gives specific instructions for keeping in the closest possible touch with the powers that be in the World of Finance. It is no magic potion to be swallowed with wonderful results, but is a plain stating of the LAW, so that all who run may read and then act. And he who acts will win success, because he is following the LAW that has been laid down from time immemorial.
Whether rich or poor, successful or unsuccessful—it matters not—this book will be of great value to you. If you are a natural moneymaker, perhaps you have been using the LAW unconsciously. This book will tell you how to handle it consciously. If you are unsuccessful and money seems to come hard, it will guide your thought and actions into the proper channels where you will get the highest possible results.
“THE LAW OF FINANCIAL SUCCESS” combines theory with practical knowledge. It not only states the LAW, but tells how to apply it. It not only informs one how to make money, but also tells him how and in what way to invest it to get the largest possible returns.

Fater Tom and The Pope
by Sir Samuel Ferguson, keeper of the Irish Records. This charming little book is quite a literary gem, a burning satire, easily surpassing “Mr. Dooley.” In fact it is almost Rabelaisean in its rollicking hilarious humor.
This book is intended as both a warning and a prediction.
Ragnar Redbeard's Might is Right ends thus: “Book II will be issued when circumstances demand it.”
Guess what, the 1903 novel Rival Caesars is Book II.
The story begins in the colonial days, when Burr and Hamilton were both young men in New York and continue until after the fatal duel. It is supposed that both the “Rival Caesars” were members of a secret organization known as “The Iron Cross,” and in this way, as well as in some other respects, the story is given suggestion of the weird and occult.
Rival Caesars is more than just a romantic novel starring Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton, it was cleverly put together as a recruiting tool for Arthur Desmond and his revolutionary dreams. From Rival Caesars introductory notes; “Therefore the readers of this book are expected to think between the lines. Nay, they are commanded so to do.” Readers were invited to correspond with the author... For the initiated “a recruiting tool for revolutionary dreams.”

In his work, Mr. Watson takes up, one by one, each of the propositions of Karl Marx, and discusses them fully and fairly.
He also analyses the great book of Herr Bebel, the world-leader of Socialism, “Woman Under Socialism.”
Mr. Watson cites standard historical works to prove that Bebel, Marx and other Socialist leaders are altogether wrong about,
The Origin of Prosperity,
The rise of the Marital relation,
The Cause of the inequality of Wealth, etc.
Mr. Watson demonstrates that Socialism—as taught by Marx, Bebel, LaSalle, Engel, etc.— would annihilate
Individuality and personal liberty,
Home-life as we know it,
The Marital relation, with its protection to women, and finally
RELIGION OF ALL KINDS.
Mr. Watson proves that SPECIAL PRIVILAGE intrenched in law and in government, is now, and always has been, the Great Enemy of the Human race.

Redbeard Versus Tolstoy
This brutally outspoken egoist publication includes essays and works by Lord Erwin McCall (John Basil Barnhill), Malfew Seklew, Ragnar Redbeard.
One of the most remarkable books ever written. The author, a man of wealth and high social position, and who writes under a nom de plume, “Edmund Boisgilbert, M.D,” presents, in a wonderfully fascinating and startlingly original work of fiction, a profound study of present sociological conditions, and follows these conditions out to what he believes will be their inevitable result. First published in 1890.
A dangerously revolutionary futuristic novel with a dystopian theme in a New York setting.
The book is luridly fascinating. 1988, New York, the scene of the story, is an earthly heaven, where man (or rather, capitalism) has brought nature under foot, and chained science to his car as a slave. Airships scour the atmosphere. Electricity threads the earth. Money is the only god, and human brotherhood has perished from off the face of the earth. One-seventh of the entire population riot in soulless luxury. The great bulk of the people lead and live the lives of brutes lower than the beasts that perish. Then comes the inevitable crash. Civilisation in the twentieth century totters over the brink of Tophet, and falls into an abyss of chaotic Sheol, in which all art, science, beauty and loveliness perish together. The French Revolution is a child’s dream compared to the horrors conjured up by the writer of Caesar’s Column. The outlook for humanity for thousands of years afterwards is blacker than midnight. To-day the ignorant mob triumphs over the brutal plutocracy. To-morrow it will starve. The day after it will devour its own flesh and blood; and civil government of the rudest kind will take long, long centuries to re-establish itself.
By Fyodor Dostoevsky
“Crime and Punishment” is the greatest of Dostoevsky’s novels, and those who have not read it can have only an incomplete idea of the author’s genius. A great critic of Russian literature, whose affection for Turgenev never allowed him to do more than strict justice to a rival’s work, once declared that this book was the most perfect study in criminal psychology since Shakespeare wrote “Macbeth.” The story is quite simple. A certain student named Raskolnikov is living in miserable poverty. His head is as full of ambitions as his pockets are empty of roubles, and he is constantly chafed by the thought of an old hag who keeps a pawnshop where he has now and then raised a little money. The horrible idea of murder for the sake of coin comes to him, but at first he resists it. His whole nature revolts against any act of cruelty, but a number of small circumstances combine to make it seem that the crime is inevitable. In a tavern he hears a discussion of which the gist is that in a world where young lives are often wasted for lack of help those who abuse their riches should be destroyed. A letter suddenly tells him that his sister is hastening into a miserable marriage simply on account of his family’s penury. Another chance conversation reveals how easily the old woman’s death could be compassed.
By Edward Roberts
Written anonymously and first published in 1922, is perhaps the most prominent anti-Hollywood polemic published during this turbulent time in film history.
The author (later identified as former PHOTOPLAY editor Edward Roberts) takes us on a guided tour through the seedy, disreputable, thoroughly indecent underworld that lurks beneath Hollywood's glistening, glamorous facade. It is a sensational work of moral alarmism that gives us a wild, untamed, unapologetically lurid account of Hollywood's dark side.
