Condition: See description


New York: American Labor Education Service, 1940. First Edition. Agenda for the first of a short-lived annual series of Midwest Conferences held by the ALES throughout World War II. The Conference included a series of discussion panels ("Can Labor Hold Its Own?"; "Techniques in Workers' Education"); and an exhibition of materials for workers' classes. Upper cover adorned with a rather lovely vignette of a cloud-topped industrial skyline, a hand holding up a torch in the fore-ground. Unfortunately the torch's flame is obscuring the "GE" in the title's "KNOWLEDGE." Not catalogued in OCLC (either under "Knowledge" or "Knowled") as of December, 2018. Quarto bifolium (25x20cm.), fold at top edge; illustration to upper panel signed in image ["Ed. Lossus?"], text printed from typescript. Faint fold lines most notable to rear cover, rust stain from previously removed paperclip at top edge, some light dust-soil else Very Good and sound.
