Croatian-language edition of the British socialist's pamphlet "Imprudent Marriages," first published by Charles Kerr in the 1890s and described in a contemporary review as "a short but spicy little work" ("Progressive Thought" (Olathe, KS), November 1, 1899). This translation, by a Croatian-American student at the University of Chicago, was issued by a small and short-lived Croatian-language socialist workers' publisher. At head of title "No. 8 Nardona Knjižnica." This title apparently unrecorded, we find no copies in OCLC (November, 2018) or the NUC.
