New York: Boni & Liveright, 1927. First Edition. Octavo. Cloth boards; dustjacket; 398pp. Tight, near fine copy in exceptionally fine dustjacket. A novel loosely based on the life and career of Eastman's friend John Reed, concerning a young businessman who is converted to the IWW cause by the Paterson silk strike of 1913. Easily Eastman's scarcest book, and almost impossible to find in dustjacket; this is by far the nicest copy we have seen. HANNA 1060. BLAKE 244. RIDEOUT p.295.
