New York: Arbeiter Ring [aka Workmens Circle], 1910. First Edition. Souvenir book and organizational history, issued in conjunction with the tenth anniversary convention of Der Arbeiter Ring, aka The Workmens Circle, a Jewish-American labor association and mutual-aid society that formed following the massive waves of Yiddish immigration following the Russian and European pogroms of the Eighteen-eighties and Nineties. The Workmens Circle is still in existence as a Jewish cultural and liberal political organization, but at the time of this publication the Circle's aims were essentially Marxist, in line with those of the left wing of the American Socialist Party, with which many of its members were closely affiliated. In keeping with the sense of accomplishment that the organization's members would have felt having survived both Russian pogroms and ten years in a New World barely more sympathetic to Jewish culture than the Old, this souvenir book is rather elaborately produced, with numerous halftone plates reproducing photographs and drawings, as well as many illustrations in text. Small octavo (18.5cm). Printed thick paper wrappers; 256 pp; 16 unnumbered leaves of plates; illus; portraits. Mild external rubbing and wear; text clean, tight and unmarked - a Very Good copy. Text in Yiddish but for a few captions in English.
