Scotching the Serpent
Aurora, Mo.: Menace Publishing Company. First edition. Stapled, purple wrappers (18.5 x 13 cm) printed in black; 96 pp. Scarce anti-Catholic novelette about a young lawyer determined to win the gubernatorial race of the fictional town of Eldorado on a campaign of anti-Romanism and Prohibition in order to win the hand of his sweetheart. He not only succeeds, but he also rescues his sweetheart's cousin who's been locked away in a nunnery by knocking out the priest who holds her there. The author appears to have been Capt. Harry Planert (1867-1952) who also authored "The Last of the Templars" (1922). Undated, but presumably published before Dec. 11, 1921 when the entire Menace Publishing plant burned to the ground. Some sunning and light wear to wrapper, cheap paper browning, but a VG+ copy. No other copies in commerce (Dec., 2017) and no record for this title in WorldCat.
