Akron, Oh: Independent Labor League, n.d. [1943, from preface]. Stapled Wrappers. Only edition of this full-throated left-wing program to advance labor interests, published in the midst of the Second World War and couched in strongly antifascist terms. Slim demy 8vo (207 x 151mm): 15,pp, with two illustrations. Original blue staple-bound wrappers printed in black, wood- (or lino-) cut vignette to front cover. Virtually pristine example of this rare pamphlet, with only two copies noted by Worldcat (Ohio State University and the Wisconsin Historical Society Library). Fine. Item #BB2341
Perhaps the work of Burr McCloskey, labor organizer and later publicist, who in 1943 edited the Independent Labor League's newspaper, The Sentinel, and in 1956 ran as a third-party candidate for vice-president.
