Who Won the San Francisco Earthquake? Uncle Sam's Plea for Humanity at the Geneva Disarmament Conference; An imaginary Oration covering ten days of February, 1932

New York: Self-published by the author (as Robbins, 1931. Paperback. xiv, 125p., frontispiece a political cartoon, softbound book in 8x5 inch plain printed yellow wraps; cover is rubberstamped with author's price, titlepage stamped in similar fashion giving us "Robbins" and a NYC address. The unglazed cover-stock, of very soft paper, is mildly worn: edgewear, a corner-tip crease, tiny ink-stain and offset color to top edge, general dust-soil. Inside find a seller's pencillings on half-title, a little more dust, toning of paper. Good (good-only) copy.

Neatly hand-printed in ink on titlepage, "Madison Sq. Hotel N.Y.C." Frontis cartoon shows animal Preparedness morphing into animalistic Militarism (credited to the San Francisco Chronicle, per another copy we have seen). FYI, the title is a rhetorical device only, anticipates postwar UN convention but set in 1932.
