Political Man: The Social Bases of Politics [Ben Shahn's Copy with TLS from Diana Klemin]

Garden City: Doubleday & Company, 1960. Octavo (21.5cm.); publisher's tan cloth, spine lettered in light blue; 432pp. Minor toning to spine cloth, textblock edges a bit dust-soiled, else Very Good and sound, albeit lacking dust jacket. Laid in typescript letter sigend by Diana Klemin, art director at Doubleday, dated March 15, 1962, and addressed to artist Ben Shahn, who would produce the cover art for the paperback edition of the present title. As Klemin directs him: "Front cover should read Political Man, with the subtitle, Where, How and Why Democracy Works in the Modern World, the author's name, Seymour Martin Lipset, Revised Edition, and finally A Doubleday Anchor Book with the colophon. / I hope all this is clear, and that your sketch-final will be beautiful on Julyl [sic]."

From the library of Ben and Bernarda Shahn with their estate label to front pastedown.

Price: $150.00
