Item Description: Humanity Publishing Compnay [1937], Detroit, 1937. First edition. Quarto. 304 pp. Profusely illustrated from photographs. Publisher's faux-morocco green cloth with yellow lettering to front and spine. Lettering a bit faded but a very clean and attractive copy.Comes with three original photographs of a plane in service to the Lawson Air Line (an unusual looking biplane with a very large covered cockpit at the front of the plane). This volume definitely is more than the cover would indicate. The ads in the back are a major clue, although there is a hint in the publisher's notice: "The call of the Public for full information concerning the life and deeds of ALFRED LAWSON, as well as the high prices asked and paid for books and documents relating to his connection with the establishment of the AIRCRAFT INDUSTRY and AIRLINES has created the necessity for this book."The book is primarily a compilation of other articles written by Lawson about the aviation world in general. But the ads in back tell another tale. One touts: "LAWSONOMY - Alfred Lawson - coined the word LAWSONOMY for his greatest work and has dissected the appellation as follows --- LAW - Stands for the procedure of God's Eternal acts. / SON - Stands for the continuity of the procedure of God's Eternal acts. / OMY - Stands for the process of the continuity of the procedure of God's Eternal acts." The next page introduces "The First Lawsonomy Baby. The Perfect Baby." and her parents, ".who gave birth to a perfectly balanced physical and mental Baby."Another ad touts "Lawsonomy: The Base of Absolute Knowledge." It includes principles such as "Lawsonomy is based upon life as it is and not upon a theory of what it ought to be. Truth is Constructive and lives but falsity is destructive and dies. Truth is real and eternal but falsity is ephemeral and abortive. Truth breeds strength and intellect but falsity breeds weakness and smart-alick-ism." The symbol in the center of the page shows Lawsonomy at the center and everything eminating from it - music, art, heredity, culture, photography, penetrability, history, radio, drama, prophecy, navigation, electricity, evolution, and much, much more. At the bottom: "If it isn't Truth, it isn't Lawsonomy."Born in 1869, Alfred Lawson declared his birth to be ".the most momentous occurrence since the birth of mankind." He claimed that he was "destined for greatness," and "If Lawson should die today, posterity will honor and glorify him as no other mortal, because he has given mankind the true base from which to start an edifice of super-knowledge of the universe and its laws."Lawson tried his hand at professional baseball, failing as a player as well as on the business side, his newly created leagues folding almost as quickly as they were started - one within a month. He then decided to publish two aviation magazines, Fly and Aircraft, although he knew nothing about publishing or aviation - and Lawson acknowledged that in 1908 only three men could fly - the two Wrights and Glenn Curtiss, but he downplayed their accomplishments, noting that the latter could only travel in short hops. He did, however, become the aircraft industry's most vocal "evangelist," touting air travel as the travel of the future.Lawson had many strange ideas, including the notion that physics and economics were inseparable, and one could not be understood without the other. His physics, however, was based on even stranger principles, based on "Suction" and "Pressure" and including other principles such as "Penetrability," but he saw the concept of "Energy" as a complete fabrication and fallacy. Many other weird concepts flow from these, such as achieving a balanced "state of maturity" in the body ("Equaeverpoise") through a combination of diet, hygiene, rest, and exercise, that would allow one to live 200 years.In part because of his "success" - he failed at baseball, he failed at running an airline, his books do not appear to have flown off the shelves - by 1943 Lawson decided to found a school - devoted to studying.
