If you like Albert Jay Nock…

…take a look at some of the things the Mises Institute has been putting on-line: not just his better known works (Memoirs of a Superfluous Man; Our Enemy, the State) but also some hard-to-find volumes, including The Book of Journeyman, a collection of many of his short pieces for the New Freeman. I set me back about $60, or a bit more, to acquire that just a couple of years ago.

    I consider Nock and Mencken to be my intellectual patrons. I first heard of Nock three years ago via LRC, when I was trying to find out where I stand politically (it was Nock who introduced me to Mencken). I then started to read all his works I could get my hands on. Two years ago I managed to track down a used copy of “Memoirs of a Superfluous Man”; it cost me some $30. I was a bit stunned when I saw it for free just a few months ago on Mises.org; a bit hurt that I spent $30 on something that was ultimately put out for free, but glad that everyone could have access to such a wonderful piece of literature. If there are two persons deserving the title of Tory Anarchists, it’s those two great figures.

    You have the New Freeman? Outside of library copies (and those quite rare), I have yet to see a copy. Have you read his other “Journal” books? Quite insightful and, of course, quite cosmopolitan. Beautifully written and a true joy to read.
