Item #05305 Bible Stories of the Wise Family. Mrs. Gerald B. WINROD.

Bible Stories of the Wise Family

Wichita, Kansas: Defender Publishers, 1933. First edition. 8vo; stapled wrappers, 50, [2] pp (adverts), illustrations. A series of Biblical stories first discussed with the Wise children, Faith and Temple, and then expanded to include other children in their neighborhood. Written by Mrs. Gerald B. Winrod, the wife of the “Jayhawk Nazi,” Gerald B. Winrod, a Protestant fundamentalist pastor who ran Defenders of the Christian Faith. He was a defendant in the Great Sedition Trial of 1944 and was an unabashed anti-Semite and anti-Communist. Adverts in the back are for Winrod’s various pamphlets and publications available through his Defender Publishers. Very light wear to wrappers with some sunning along the edges; one penciled note along the gutter of p. 5. Despite going through two printings, we find no other copies offered in commerce (April, 2018) and only one copy (of the second printing) in WorldCat at Michigan State. None of this first printing.
