Yankee Imperialismus und Dollar Diplomatie by O. Preusse-Sperber is a rant against the United States--not so surprising as it was published in 1918, the last year of WWI. I've selected this to share because of the cover art more so than the content. This is an interesting copy of a scarce little work (only four copies are located in the OCLC including Smith College, the British Library, Bibliotheque Nationale, and BM Lyon, while Harvard and the NYPL have copies but not originals) and has a nice provenance of its own, coming to me from the Library of Congress Pamphlet Collection via the Hoover War Library at Stanford.
- Preusse-Sperber, Oscar. Yankee Imperialismus und Dollar Diplomatie, Charlottenburg, 1918. 26pp. Original printed wrappers. Printed on inferior paper and so somewhat browned. Provenance: Hoover War Library, Stanford University, and then sent to the Library of Congress in 1932, and then deaccessioned in 1998. Good condition. $125
