Detroit: The Radio League of the Little Flower, 1933. First Edition. Small Octavo pamphlet measuring 7 3/4 x 5 inches (197 x 128 mm),  pages, in stapled printed wrappers. Transcript of a radio broadcast by Father Coughlin in which he says government action so far has amounted only to a "lateral attack" against the Depression. What's needed, he says, is a "frontal attack," and rails against money changers, international bankers, the Federal Reserve, and the gold standard. Coughlin's rant is actually fairly moderate compared to his views some years later, when he was openly anti-Semitic and sympathetic to Hitler and Mussolini. This pamphlet is scarce. OCLC shows only a handful of institutional holdings. No other copies in commerce as of May 2020. SCARCE. Item #2220
CONDITION: Some edge wear and soiling with a couple of small nicks to the wrappers and a light vertical crease throughout the bottom third of the pamphlet. Internally clean and unmarked. A Very Good copy.
