About This Item

Ernest Benn Limited. First UK edition published by Ernest Benn Limited in 1928. This is a very good or better copy. The highly illustrative and striking jacket is not clipped. There is a small amount of loss at the top of the spine. There is also a tiny tear to the top left hand corner of the front panel. The top of the back panel has tear that has been repaired to the reverse. along with a small water stain mark to the reverse of the jacket at the bottom of the spine and a tiny tear to the bottom edge of the front panel. The book has a tiny amount of rubbing to the bottom of the spine and a corner tip. Otherwise the book is excellent with clean pages. Overall a very good or better copy. A striking dust wrapper design by M Alleyne showing capitalists on a viewing platform watching men fighting each other below really encapsulates the theme of the book being the author's guesses and forecasts for the future. He attempts to answer key questions of the time including whether armies were needed in the future (sadly yes) along with the impact of fascism, communism and randomly witchcraft.  . Very Good. Hardcover. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. 1928.
