Larkin was at the forefront of the dispute on the side of the workers, having founded the first Irish trade union for both skilled and unskilled laborers, the Irish Transport and General Workers' Union, in 1909. Octavo (21cm.); original tan photo-illustrated staplebound wrappers; 15pp. Wrappers separated and rather worn and soiled, textblock brittle and starting to split along bottom third of spine due to poor paperstock.
