A Cure for Unemployment. Liam O'FLAHERTY.

A Cure for Unemployment

New York: Julian Press, 1931. First American edition. Staple-bound pamphlet; printed wrappers; 14pp. Covers slightly worn; front cover stamped "With compliments of American Ethnological Press." Very Good.

An uncommon O'Flaherty work, originally published in London under the anarchist publisher Charles Lahr's "Blue Moon" imprint. A Swiftian satire on the Conservative Party's economic approach to the Depression, proposing "...to substitute an [unemployed] human being as pet for every dog which is the property of a person with an income of over a thousand pounds a year ..." Proceeds from the sale of the pamphlet went to relief for unemployed workers.

Price: $200.00
