Item Information

Title:
Guide to the Haldeman-Julius Publications
Description:
The collection consists of pamphlets from both the Little Blue Book and Big Book Series. Pamphlets in the Little Blue Book series measure 5 x 3 1/2 inches. They cover a wide variety of subjects, including classical literature, history, useful knowledge, and frank treatment of sexuality, with an emphasis on homosexuality. Pamphlets in the Big Book Series measure 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches, and deal primarily with issues of sexuality. The bulk of the pamphlets are written in the late 1940s by David Oliver Cauldwell (1896-1959), a prolific and pioneering sexologist who published extensively on homosexuality and transsexualism. The sensational, often lengthy, titles were dictated by the publisher to pique public interest and increase sales.
