About This Item

Philadelphia: Knights of Labor, n.d. but before 1893. Scarce recruiting circular for the Knights of Labor, undated but presumably issued before Powderley lost the Master Workman election of 1893. Opening text differs from the earlier, 1885, circular, here describing the Knights as "not a political party, it is more, for in it are crystallized sentiments and measures for the benefit of the whole people." Recto provides the organizations twenty-two aims, including the abolition of child labor, the prohibition of "importation of foreign labor," and equal rights for men and women. Verso provides a description of the "Requirement of Knighthood," most especially that of exercising "the right of suffrage intelligently." Not separately catalogued in OCLC as of August, 2018. Broadsheet circular (29x15cm.). Signed in type by Terence W. Powderly, General Master Workman, at bottom of verso. Previous folds and rather substantial archival tape repair where stock has split at folds, faint contemporary ownership rubberstamp of J.A. Sorge to recto. About Very Good overall.
