"Floyd James Dell (June 28, 1887 – July 23, 1969) was an American newspaper and magazine editor, literary critic, novelist, playwright, and poet. Dell has been called "one of the most flamboyant, versatile and influential American Men of Letters of the first third of the 20th Century." As editor and critic, Dell's influence is alive in the work of many major American writers from the first half of the 20th century. A lifelong poet, he was also a best-selling author, as well as a playwright whose hit Broadway comedy, Little Accident (1928) , was made into a Hollywood movie. Dell wrote extensively on controversial social issues of the early 20th century, and played a major part in the political and social movements originating in New York City's Greenwich Village during the 1910s & 1920s. As editor of left-wing magazine The Masses, Dell was twice put on trial for publishing subversive literature." "The professed aim of this book is to make available, especially to parents, certain outlines of modern psychological theory restated in sociological and historical terms. It seeks to make explicit theories which heretofore have remained ill-defined in the minds even of experts in the field of social science. The theme is that patriarchal training does not fit children for living in our highly mechanized, modern Western civilization. The development of patriarchalism, its conflict with modern needs, and the significance of the underlying psychological facts are dealt with by Mr. Dell shrewdly, understandingly, and with profound insight. Nor does he omit to warn those would-be moderns who, fleeing from patriarchal conventions, only rush into the same old snare disguised to look like new. As an interesting and intelligent statement of some of the most recent findings concerning the individual and social implications of sex behavior "Love in the Machine Age" may be recommended as a valuable contribution."

2 Miller, Henry Knight Practical Psychology Seven Volumes Covering 14 Lessons: a Course of Lessons Disclosing the Secret of Health, Efficiency, Happiness and Achievement
New York Pscyhology Publishing Co. 1924 1st Trade Edition; 1st Printing Paperback Very Good+ 
This is a set of seven small format paperback books with heavy cardstock covers and glued spines. All seven volumes are in Very Good+ condition and were issued without dust jackets. The books and their contents are in clean, bright condition. "In the Roaring Twenties, in the midst of what Canadian humorist Stephen Leacock called an “outbreak of psychology in America, ” Henry Knight Miller, a 31-year-old Methodist minister, resigned his Brooklyn pulpit to start a psychology magazine for an American public eager to reap the personal benefits of the new science. Banking on this enormous popularity of psychology with the general public and his success in generating interest in his self-help sermons, Miller produced his first issue of Psychology: Health, Happiness, Success in April 1923. He told his readers that psychology held the keys to self-determination. As the science of mind, psychology was the royal road to health, happiness, and success. He expressed dismay at the inability of psychologists to communicate the practicality of their work to the public. But that would be his role. He would get beyond the jargon and technicalities of this new science and translate the research into prescriptions for public consumption."
