Father of Lies
A Military Christian Patriots right-wing book form 1938, with all plates present
Undated, 1938 as per COPAC. First edition, first printing. Hardback in dustwrapper. 22 × 14.5cm, 250pp + index, and complete set of plates to pocket at rear.
A right-wing publication from the Military Christian Patriots, which was subtitled The Secret Occult History, Symbolism, Ceremonies and Practices of the Jews Exposed in later editions. The M.C.P. were an anti-semitic group founded in 1929, who blamed Judaism for the coming war. By 1939, the government held the M.C.P. as being the main outlet for dissemination of Nazi propaganda in the UK. This book has been fully collated with the plate index and all plates are present, the majority of them being tucked into a pocket at the rear.
A scarce copy and rare to find with both the wrapper and all plates present. The book is in very good condition, there is a little fading to the boards' edges but the pages are clean and the binding is secure. The dustwrapper has some slight loss to the edges and some surface grubbying but has not been price-clipped and is now within a protective sleeve.
