Emanuel Haldeman-Julius : Pocket Series and the Little Blue Books

Front Wrapper Design Style: "How-To"

Essentially a Conventional wrapper design but with one very meaningful difference: inclusion of "The How-To Series" Subseries Declaration and associated subseries number. These booklets were likely first issued in early 1943 but it is unclear if printing of these booklets ever stopped. Accurate dating is virtually impossible, although those wrappers which display a Typographical Union label on the front or back are presumed to be earlier printings, likely between 1943 and 1949. Additional information can be found in Dating Little Blue Books. Please check out our Database of Haldeman-Julius Pocket Series and Little Blue Book Titles for a more exhaustive list of titles in The How-to Series.
