Niu Iork [New York]: Izdatelskoi Komissii pri Rabochem Soiuze "Samoobrazovanie"], 1923. First American Edition. First American edition of what Kropotkin's editor Lebedev called "the swan song of the great humanitarian scientist and revolutionist-anarchist, [constituting] as it were, the crowning work and the résumé of all the scientific, philosophical, and sociological views of Peter Alekseyevich Kropotkin" (from Lebedev's foreword, as translated by Louis Friedland for the 1924 English-language edition). That this major work of anarchist philosophy had its first American incarnation in a Russian-language edition testifies to the still-powerful influence of the Russian exile intellectual community in the years immediately following the Revolution. A very nicely preserved copy of a major (and uncommon) Kropotkin work. Second edition in Russian, and first American Edition. Octavo (22cm); blue cloth boards, lettered in gilt on spine; , 6-259, , iv, + pp publisher's ads. Minimal external wear; internally clean and unmarked; a Near Fine copy. "Tom I" all published.
