American Mercury: Nixon the man and his politics, Toledano, Ralph de
161 Toledano, Ralph de American Mercury: Nixon the man and his politics
New York , NY American Mercury Magazine 1959 First Impression Paperback Very Good with no dust jacket 
Photo of Nixon on cover. Rare. May 1959 edition. The American Mercury was an American magazine published from 1924[1] to 1981. It was founded as the brainchild of H. L. Mencken and drama critic George Jean Nathan. The magazine featured writing by some of the most important writers in the United States through the 1920s and 1930s. After a change in ownership in the 1940s, the magazine attracted conservative writers. A second change in ownership a decade later turned the magazine into a virulently anti-Semitic publication. It was published monthly in New York City. The magazine went out of business in 1981, having spent the last 25 years of its existence in decline and controversy. In 1956, George Lincoln Rockwell was hired as a writer, and later became the founder of the American Nazi Party. In January 1959, Maguire published an American Mercury editorial supporting a theory that there was a Jewish conspiracy for world domination.
