[FABIANS] SHAW, George Bernard
Fabianism and the Empire: A Manifesto by The Fabian Society
London: Grant Richards, 1900. First Edition. 12mo (18cm). Original blue printed wrappers; 101pp. Small, neat repair to front wrapper at hinge, else a clean, attractive copy with just minor rubbing and wear to extremities. Though listed as the editor, Shaw wrote the entire text of this extended manifesto - at some emotional expense to himself, one would gather, judging from his September 26th letter to his publisher Grant Richards: "...The manifesto has passed; all is well save its shattered author." LAURENCE A41.
