San Francisco: Alexander Berkman, 1916. Uncommonly nice copy of Berkman's important revolutionary journal, published from 1916 to 1917 (29 issues total). Though conceived as a pro-labor revolutionary organ without specific political affiliations, The Blast, as one would predict given Berkman's background and affiliations, tended strongly toward a militant anarchist point of view. The current issue features articles by Berkman and others, and a cover illustration by Robert Minor. The Blast was a hastily-produced, ephemeral publication, fragile from the outset and clearly not built to last. Original issues are exceedingly uncommon in the trade. GOLDWATER 23. Quarto (33cm); illustrated wrappers, stapled; 8pp. Paper is toned and edgeworn, with splitting along spine fold, oxidation to staples, and chips to lower corners (not affecting text or design); upper edge uncut; a Good, complete copy. (Inventory #: 31099)
The history, literature, and art of American social movements, including Civil Rights, Feminism, Labor History, Radical Politics, and Counterculture.
