New York: Thomas Seltzer, 1923. FIRST EDITION. Five illustrations by Césare. Publisher's cloth, bumped and lightly worn; interior excellent. First edition. Bryant (1885-1936) was an American journalist and feminist, best remembered for her profiles of Bolshevik leaders including Lenin, Trotsky, and Katherine Breshkovsky - the grandmother of the Russian revolution. Though she traveled extensively for her work, at home she ran with an elite circle of writers and thinkers including John Reed (who became her first husband), and Eugene O'Neill (who became her lover). The present volume contains several of her stories about Lenin and his subordinates, written while on assignment for Hearst's publications. Known to have Bolshevik sympathies, the author attempts to humanize the leaders of the revolution for an American audience, to show them "as they really are, as I know them in their homes, where the red glare does not penetrate and they live as other men.".
