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

Front Wrapper Design Style: "Knowledge of Life"

A highly distinctive wrapper style used exclusively for select titles printed as a part of the Knowledge of Life Series. It is not clear exactly when this design style emerged but observation suggests a probable date range of 1946 to at least 1959. It is likely, however, that additional printings may have happened right up until printing operations ceased (1978). Accurate dating is impossible based on front wrapper design style alone. Considerations such as typeface and fonts used, number of staples, back wrapper style, etc. must be taken in to consideration. 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 Knowledge of Life Series.
