In addition to his journals, Sidney published a number of pamphlets over the years. We’ve tried to document below all known non-periodical publications.

195x – “Liberty Leaflet No. 1: Anarchism & Communism”

196X- “What Individualists Want” by Emile Armand

1962 – “Anarchism and Individualism : Three Essays” by Emile Armand

In a 1993 interview, Sid gave some background on it:

“…I became more and more interested in what was called individualist anarchism. I then read Max Stirner because I thought he was identified with that school—wrongly I think now, but that was the case then—and I got in touch with Armand, the French individualist anarchist, and he “charged” me to “reanimate the individualist anarchist movement in all the countries of the English language”, which I tried to do… I published some of his pieces in English translation… I issued two as leaflets, one while he was still alive; then I got together, after he died, three of his essays, already in English, had them printed by Express Printers, and brought them out as a pamphlet called Anarchism and Individualism.”

1966 – “Some Poems” by Pat Parker

patparker-coverThis was a booklet edited by Sid of his wife’s poetry.

Pat’s poems were often found in the pages of Sid’s publications and there was even a collection of Pat’s poems published by a small press.

1966 – “O Idios: Three Essays on Individualist Anarchism” by Jean-Pierre Pages-Schweitzer

ho-idiosThere are two covers for this booklet. One that shows the name as “Ho Idios” and the other as “O Idios.” Only the latter is currently in possession of the SEP Archives, though we found a copy of the former online (pictured).

In a 1993 interview, Sid gave some background on it:

(Schweitzer) didn’t edit any journal, he wrote this pamphlet. When he returned to France, he contributed to various papers, and he published, I think, one or two pamphlets over there. The only paper he had edited was when he was a young man and he brought out a Marxist journal called Les Egaux (The Equals). He was in the Communists in France; he was also in the paratroops in Algeria and got mixed up with the OAS. He was arrested and put in prison, from where he escaped to England; he could never work out whether it was because of his activities as a Communist or as a right-wing member of the OAS…

He claimed to be a follower of Stirner and a Nietzschean, but in actual fact, I suspect that until he got back to France, he never read Stirner properly. I think his habit was to leaf through books, find out the most shocking statement he could, and throw it in people’s faces. He was odd because he was very much attracted to the Roman Catholic Church, though he wrote for The Freethinker. He used to argue that this was a “conscious schizophrenism”. He said he liked the emotional atmosphere and ritual of the Church. Later on, when he went back to France, he dropped anarchism and went into some Catholic group who worshipped the Virgin Mary: Mariolatry, I believe it is called.

1966 – “Individualist Anarchism: An Outline” by S.E. Parker

individualistanarchimspamphlet-1966It appears there are two editions of this 4 page essay, one (pictured) that is dated 1966, and another more professionally typeset edition published by “The Stanhope Press”. Ironically, the more professionally typeset edition has a typo on the cover.

In Minus One, issue 39 (1977) Sid writes:

From Greece comes a new and well-produced anarchist individualist review called Utopia. Among other items it carries translations of my leaflet “Individualist Anarchism: An Outline” (Previously translated into French, German, Spanish and Swedish and now out of print).

We would love to find translations of this text and host them here. If you are able to provide us with a scan or transcription of that text, it would be appreciated. Please use the CONTACT page.

1967 – “Anarchism and Modern Society” by Jeff Robinson.

In a 1993 interview, Sid gave some background on it:

Of the other pamphlets I published, one was by Jean-Pierre Schweitzer and the other was by Jeff Robinson, but in the latter case, Jeff Robinson handled the distribution himself. He was interested in getting somebody else to be the publisher because he didn’t want his landlord to know what he was doing.

1988 – “Egoism” John Beverly Robinson

egoism-robinson-1988This four page booklet reprints a 1915 essay from John Beverly Robinson.

Wikipedia gives a brief biographical sketch of the author:

John Beverley Robinson (1853–1923), was an American anarchist author, publisher, translator, and architect.
He was for a time publisher of the Free Soiler the newsletter of the Georgist American Free Soil Society. Today he is most identified with the individualist/egoist wing of American anarchism (though he also had incarnations as a Tolstoyan non-resistant and as a Georgist), and was associated with Benjamin Tucker’s Liberty.
