Item Description: Llano Co-Operative Colony N.d. (ca 1934), Newllano, 1934. Eleven-point plan for "forming co-operative Units on the land.[to be] carried out by a family, a group of families, or numbers of people combining themselves together upon the land and from it producing all that the soil itself can be made to give them for their time and labor." The Llano cooperative, under the leadership of the socialist visionary Job Harriman, moved from Texas to Louisiana in 1917. This leaflet appears to have been issued around 1934 (dated from context), at the height of the Great Depression; despite the enthusiastic tone of the piece, by 1939 the Llano Colony would itself collapse under the weight of falling farm prices and lack of income. Leaflet. Single sheet, 15cm x 34cm (ca 6" x 13-1/2"), folded to make 8 panels. Slightly toned at folds, but clean and well-preserved. Bookseller Inventory # 20406

Item Description: Wilbur F. Copeland / The Copeland School N.d. (after 1910), Alpine, NJ, 1910. Wilbur F. Copeland (likely dates 1864-1943), a disciple of Edward Bellamy and Laurence Gronlund, founded the Straight Edge Society, a Christian Socialist community, in New York in 1899. According to Trahair (Utopias and Utopias: An Historical Dictionary, Westport: 1999) the Straight Edge Industrial Settlement began as a cooperative business venture in New York but was later reconstituted as a workers' residence in Alpine, NJ (a New York suburb). Our further research on genealogical websites suggests that this move took place around 1906-1908. However the present leaflet identifies Herman H. Horne as a "Professor of Philosophy of Education" at New York University, a position which he did not obtain until after 1910. Leaflet. Printed both sides of a single 8-1/2" x 8-1/2" sheet, folded to make six panels (rear panel blank). Prints the text of Prof. Herman H. Horne's 33 "tests of a genuine education," with promotional text for Copeland's "The Copeland School," a center for Christian Socialist pedagogy in Alpine, New Jersey. Mild soil and creasing; Very Good. Bookseller Inventory # 20356
