Paper-backed boards, lettered in gilt on spine and front cover; dustjacket; 266pp +index. A very good copy in the extremely uncommon dustwrapper, fashioned from the same stock used for the book's endpapers, hand-titled in Nearing's hand on spine panel. This is #3 of 400 copies signed by Nearing, with purchaser's name (Alfred Bosch) also entered on limitation page in Nearing's hand.
Nearing's treatise on the waning of American Imperial power and the pending social revolution. This is the copy of Austrian School economist Alfred Bosch, a close associate of Friedrich Hayek. With Bosch's cancelled check, written to Nellie Seeds Nearing (Nearing's first wife) laid in. We have never seen another copy in dustwrapper.
