The Masses - December, 1916 (Vol. IX, No. 2)
New York: The Masses Publishing Co. 1916. First Edition. Quarto (28cm). Original pictorial wrappers, 39pp. Loosening to spine but not detatched; some chipping to extremities, else clean and intact with bright cover illustration by Frank Waltz. Very Good. Includes a two page centerfold spread featuring a striking color illustration by Arthur B. Davies titled "Struggle." Printed on more durable paper than the aged newsprint of the rest of the text, the illustration depicts a mass of people in various stages of unrest. Other illustrations and contributions by Art Young, Maurice Becker, Cornelia Barns, and John Reed.
