How To Live Though an Executive: Communications Manual

Washington, D.C.: Hubbard Association of Scientologists, Int. 1953. First edition. Octavo (22 cm). Perfect-bound paperback; iii, 123 pp.; illus. A scarce first edition of How To Live Though an Executive with the requisite statement: "The manuscript of this book was prepared by Richard deMille [sic] who helped in the development of the communications system herein set forth," which was removed from later editions. This is allegedly one of a number of books authored by Hubbard in collaboration with other individuals who were later given no credit. Richard de Mille was the adopted son and blood nephew of the famed Hollywood director, Cecil B. DeMille. He became Ron L. Hubbard's personal assistant around 1950 before abandoning Hubbard and Scientology in 1954. This book was Hubbard's foray into commerce/business/administration, although it's no longer in print through the Church of Scientology. Some wear and faint soiling to wrappers; dampstain to fore-edge, although no marginal bleed evident. A Very Good copy of this scarce edition. One other copy currently found in the trade at the reasonable price of $16,490; 7 copies in OCLC, although bearing a Phoenix location. A record for our copy exists, but no libraries purport holding copies. Item #03051
