About This Item

New York: The Macmillan Company, 1913. First Edition. First Printing. Octavo (19.5cm); dark blue cloth, blocked and titled in burgundy and gilt on spine and front cover; viii, 448, [8]pp ads. Neat, contemporary owner's name and date to front endpaper (a "Dr. L.W. Truman"). Mild external wear, with light rubbing to corners and spine ends; hinges very lightly pulled; a clean and unmarked copy, easily Very Good. Among the more nuanced Socialist novels of the 'teens and, according to Rideout, one of the first serious portrayals of the I.W.W. in American fiction. The book is also noteworthy for offering a woman protagonist who, in contrast to the formulaic society-girl-turned-socialist so common to the radical "conversion" novels of the period, is here a sweatshop worker who must do battle with her instinctive militancy (which initially attracts her to the IWW) to finally join the Socialist Party. RIDEOUT p.294. HANNA 508.
