Spine faded, covers unevenly faded and lightly soiled, small nick to head of spine. Text lightly browned but generally quite bright and clean.

First published by Mother Earth in the U.S. in 1912, this is the first UK edition, with an introduction by Edward Carpenter, with a different portrait frontispiece and without the portrait of Berkman ‘at the time of the Homestead strike’ (as per every other copy of the UK edition I have seen – presumably as issued).
