This is the May 1986 issue of the Chesterton Review, which is dedicated to Belloc.  The essays included in it our:  an Intro by Ian Boyd, An Open Letter to Hilaire Belloc by GK Chesterton, An Example of Belloc's Uncollected verse by Belloc, Vote for Chesterton by Gerard Slevin, Hilaire Belloc: Jacobite and Jacobin by John P. McCarthy, Hilaire Belloc by Jane Soames Nickerson, Freedom, Property, and The Servile State by James Schall, S.J., Religion and Politics in Bellocian Biographies by Edwards N. Peters, Hilaire Belloc and the Spanish Civil War by Jay P. Corrin, The Hilaire Belloc Collection at Boston College by Michael H. Markel, and then the Reviews section which deals with things Bellocian.  No other essay I have ever read more convinced me of the sheer and ridiculous idiocy that is Belloc than the one by Corrin here.  141 pages total.  This is an absolute must have for any Belloc fan or distributist.  Price $20.00 plus $5.00 S&H.  SOLD

Old Thunder, A Life of Hilaire Belloc by Joseph Pearce.  Ignatius, 2002.  Hardcover w/ dust jacket.  318pages.  Clean and tight.  Excellent to like new condition.  Price $5.00 plus $4.00 S&H.  SOLD
