Condition: See description


Reading, PA: The Socialist Party of Pennsylvania, 1913. First Edition. Pamphlet. Scarce organizational pamphlet, intended to build on the Socialist Party's advances in the 1912 general elections. Following a general introduction to parliamentary procedure and Robert's Rules, the text is divided into 52 sections, under such headings as "The Class Struggle," "The Socialist Plan of Attack," "Poverty," "The Social Evil," etc.; with questions and answers arranged in catechism form. Text concludes with the Socialist Party platform of 1912. The author, Ira Tilton, was an Indiana socialist organizer and journalist, proprietor of the Valparaiso Social Educator from 1911-1913; his approach to social pedagogy may be summed up in this statement from the Introduction: "It is generally agreed that healthy informed minds think alike just as nearly as healthy eyes see alike." The obvious corollary is left unstated. This title uncommon; OCLC notes 5 locations. Octavo (19.5cm). Staple-bound thick paper wrappers; 72pp. Mild cover rubbing and soil; Very Good.
