Amerikánštiny: pestrá sbírka zajímavostí, momentky z amerického života, zvláštnosti za mořem i na pevnině... [Americanisms: a collection of curiosities, moments of life in America, and peculiarities overseas and on the continent...].

Králové Pole: Nová česká myšlenka, [1914]. Octavo (22 × 13.5 cm). Original staple-stitched pictorial wrappers; 80 pp. About very good; rust to staples; small nick to head of spine.

A most curious digest of articles on American customs, daily life, history, and psychology, as seen through the eyes of this little-known publisher from Moravia. The book contains excerpts from the author’s other works, with titles such as How to Make Money or A Guide to Success, or Czech Americanism. The texts focus on topics such as working life and sexuality in America, the psychology of success, and the secrets of financial and personal success. With a suitably grotesque depiction of Uncle Sam on the cover (not attributed). Not found in KVK or OCLC.
