New York/London: G.P. Putnam's Sons. Very Good. 1933. First Edition. Hardcover. (no dust jacket) [a good sound book, moderate wear at extremities, mild bumping to a few corners]. An early critique of Roosevelt's New Deal by this British-born writer, a devoted follower of Henry George, who had spent much of his early life in the U.S. establishing himself as an actor and theatrical producer. Upon returing to England, he got involved in politics and spent six years as a Member of Parliament (1910-1916), resigning when his pacifist beliefs ran counter to the prevailing national spirit during the Great War. Relocating to the U.S., he married a meat-packing heiress, became a U.S. citizen, and concentrated on his writing career, which had begun as early as 1893 with a couple of opera librettos, and eventually produced more than sixty books, as well as numerous articles and plays. He and his wife were also active philanthropists, endowing various colleges, museums and other institutions, and even an archaeological expedition. . (Inventory #: 22227)
