Stapled, greenish-gray wraps with KKK-related drawings. This booklet (3 1/2 X 8) has some edge and corner wear along with overall aging. There is a horizontal crease through the middle where this was folded and kept in a pocket. There is some wear along the crease line and it is still flexible. Because of the crease, this copy is in the G- range. This booklet on Klanishness is by Imperial Wizard, William Joseph Simmons. Simmons, a kind of fraternal bigot, had restarted the Klan in 1914 with a rally on Stone Mountain in Georgia. He was later pushed out of the Klan by more pragmatic and more dangerous bigots. Simmons writes that this booklet contain "Official Instructions in K-uno in the border Realm of Karacter," whatever that means. Simmons goes on to define all the types of Klanishness that a good Klansman must adhere to. It was such stuff as this that Stetson Kennedy (and Superman) used to make fun of the Klan and severely weaken its influence. This is an uncommon booklet. WorldCat notes onlly 10 or so copi
