Ralph Townsend provided one of the oddest, least-time-conscious, and pernicious titles (printed in 1938!) in my experience with pulpy propagandistic quick-publications of the 1930's. Townsend (1900-1976) was a Columbia School of Journalism product, but something happened, and emerged in the 1930's as a deep Sinophobe, an anti-Roosevelt anti-interventionist far-right apologist for the imperialism of the Japanese government.
- Townsend, Ralph. America Has No Enemies in Asia. Evidently self-published by the author in San Francsico in 1938. 48pp. Photo illustrated. Original wrappers. Very good copy. $95
