Carmel-by-the-Sea: The Carmelite, 1932. First Edition. Well-preserved single issue of this uncommon California weekly devoted primarily to news and events in the small artists' community of Carmel-by-the-Sea, on the Monterey peninsula. Lincoln Steffens moved to Carmel in 1926 with his wife Ella and quickly established himself as a controversial and divisive figure. The present article, in which Steffens presents the proposition that the only choice in the 1932 Presidential election is between Republican Hoover and Communist William Z. Foster (Roosevelt offering, in his opinion, no more than a watered-down but ideologically identical alternative to the Republican candidate) shows why. Tabloid, 31.5cm x 24cm; (8)pp. Mild edgewear and toning; Very Good.
