From the library of Ben and Bernarda Bryson Shahn, with estate label tipped on to front endpaper.

Description:
Toronto: Northern Book House, 1958. First Edition. Octavo (20cm). Original brown wrappers, lettered in gilt on front cover and spine; 176pp; illus. Mild external dusting & soil; Very Good or better. A remarkable Cold War document, written by the career Soviet apologist (editor of the pro-Soviet journal "Northern Notes") Dyson Carter. Carter contrasts - at considerable length - the realities of the post-Sputnik USSR against the mythically primitive culture caricatured in the mainstream American media - a caricature which he claims Americans have been intentionally "brainwashed" into believing, in the interests of maintaining popular antagonism between the two countries. The source of this disinformation, according to Carter, is none other than John Foster Dulles, whose motives apparently stemmed from his thwarted ambition to assume financial control of Russia in the months following the October Revolution. Implies also that Dulles was a silent financier behind the Third Reich. A rare example of North… Read More

Description:
N.p., n.d. [NY: CPUSA, 1948]. Broadside on newsprint, 17" x 23"; printed recto-only. Text in six columns beneath title headline and central graphic. Old folds; a few brief splits in margins; newsprint slightly toned -- still a well-preserved and attractive copy, Very Good. Broadside printing, possibly issued as an extra to the Daily Worker (though this is nowhere stated) of the CPUSA's 1948 Platform. The text calls for general reforms in the areas of international relations, the rights of workers, civil rights (including the right to profess communist beliefs), race relations and electoral laws. Within these categories demands are sometimes quite specific; e.g., "Abolish the un-American Committee [and] withdraw the indictments against the 12 Communist leaders;" and, "We demand that the Ingram family be freed and adequately compensated for the ordeals to which they have been subjected." The platform was also published as a 14-pp pamphlet, but this broadside printing appears rare, with no examples in… Read More
