I Call To You Across the Continent. Poems and songs by Edith Segal for Morton Sobell in Alcatraz, and to the memory of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg, executed June 19, 1953

New York: People's Artists, 1953. First Edition. A collection of Segal's proletarian hymns, following her widely-issued "Give Us Your Hand," which had been issued the year before to raise money for Ethel and Julius Rosenberg's defense fund. The current volume contains a number of memorial poems to the Rosenbergs, but is composed primarily of works on the theme of Morton Sobell, an accused Soviet spy who had been swept up in the course of the Rosenberg affair. We have beeen unsuccessful in identifying "Lil, Moishe, and Paul," but from the tenor of Segal's inscription we would assume some connection to Sobell. Octavo. Staple-bound pamphlet; illustrated card wrappers; 23pp. Presentation copy, inscribed by Edith Segal in October, 1953: "To Lil, Moishe, & Paul, warmest regards and heads up - Edith." Moderate cover wear; mild soiling within; Very Good.

Price: $60.00
