Childhood. Eugene Victor DEBS.


N.p.; n.d. [Terre Haute: by the Author, ca 1899?]. Extremely uncommon Debs item, presumably self-published for private distribution. The brief essay begins as a rhapsody over the joys of childhood, but soon strikes a chord more in keeping with the great socialist reformer's other works: "...the millions of children crushed and slain in the conquest of capitalism have not died in vain. From their little martyr graves all over this fair land their avenging images are springing up, as it were, against the system that murdered them and pronouncing upon it, in the name of God and humanity, the condemnation of death." OCLC notes six locations, of which three are in Indiana. Bifolium, printed on blue paper; 2pp. Folded size 16cm x 8cm. Fine.
