Debs Pamphlet Collection online

Indiana State University's Cunningham Memorial Library has among its holding the Debs Collection of radical pamphlets. This collection, heavy on left and labor publications, is indexed online and many of the pamphlets have been scanned to pdf format. Anarchist titles are few and far between, but there are lots of items from organizations like the ACLU and the IWW, and from publishers such as Charles H. Kerr. I've been collecting Kerr pamphlets for years now, and have been able to scoop up pdfs of items I have never seen for sale. I'll write up some of the more specifically interesting items as I get a chance to work through the listings, but here are a few random gems:

DeCleyre, Voltairine. Direct Action. New York: Mother Earth Publishing Company, 1912. 19 pp. Pamphlet D295.5 .D5 1912p. PDF
