Vicarious Philanthropy. ANARCHISTS, I W. W.

Vicarious Philanthropy

N.p. N.d., but ca. 1890. Small octavo (19.5cm.); sewn pamphlet; printed self-wraps; 24pp. Front cover soiled, with faint institutional hand-stamp; text clean and unmarked. An early work by the prominent Anarchist, utopian novelist, and eugenicist; a criticism of top-down social reform measures, encouraging would-be philanthropists to "repent of their crimes against the toilers...withdraw from corrupting alliances with caste and cultivation, and .. become Socialists, Anarchists, revolutionists." No date, but mentions the University Settlement of New York (founded in 1886) as "embryonic."
