1917, five essays by Bertrand Russell
First US edition, hardback bound in blue cloth with gilt titling to spine. 18 × 12cm, 172pp.
Five political essays by Bertrand Russell, being 1. Political Ideals, 2. Capitalism and the Wage System, 3. Pitfalls in Socialism, 4. Individual Liberty and Public Control, and 5. National Independence and Internationalism.
A good copy but there is a water stain to the 30 pages or so, not affecting the text, just to the upper corner and margins. There is some pencil underlining, heaviest to the final essay but on the whole this remains a perfectly readable copy.
