Tar and Feathers, An Entrancing Post-War Romance in which the Ku Klux Klan, Its Principles and Activities Figure Prominently. Based on Fact. Chicago: Universal Press, 1924.

Third Edition". Original red cloth, octavo, illustrated dustjacket. An unusual social themed novel concerned with the issue of race in America, the 'facts' of Zionism and Russian communism. This cataloguers first impression was that this was a novel promoting racism, but after some inspection (and I could be wrong, as I have not read the whole text) the work seems to point out the fundamental errors of the Ku Klux Klan and its principles. From the jacket flap: "Out of the World War emerge four men who form the principal characters, the three friends - a Jew, a Catholic, a Protestant - and the Negro. How they meet the blind forces of injustice is vividly set forth and the problem that Hamilton solves in Tar and Feathers is the same problem that every other white, native born Protestant must answer for himself sooner or later. The book throws a clear, bright light on the place in American society of the Jew, the Catholic, the Negro and the Foreigner and for that reason it is perhaps not always pleasant reading, for some." Found in the Ball State University Special Collection of Ku Klux Klan Material. Extremely uncommon in dustjacket. Near Fine in Very Good dustjacket with shallow chipping at spine ends and some edges.
