Men Vs. The Man: A Correspondence Between Robert Rives La Monte, Socialist, and H.L. Mencken, Individualist.

New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1910. First Edition. A collection of letters written between Mencken and his friend Robert Rives La Monte, who worked at the Baltimore News, as well as being an editor for the International Socialist Review. La Monte, who whole-heartedly believed in the promise of socialism, wrote six letters to his friend in an effort to convince him to reject his selfish ways and become a comrade in the revolution. Mencken, an avowed individualist, presents his fiery responses to La Monte's plea for total equality and universal brotherhood. Scarce in the trade, particularly in this condition. APG 011a.
