The Proletariat: A Challenge to Western Civilization [INSCRIBED]

New York and London: McGraw-Hill Book Company, Inc., 1937. First edition. Tall octavo (23.5 cm). Black cloth with gilt spine; xvii, 297 pp.; dust jacket. INSCRIBED by the author on the ffep. With a foreword by Horace Taylor. From the front panel: "In this interesting and timely book the author deals authoritatively with the rise of the proletariat, giving a systematic analysis of its sociological and economic significance, the psychology of the proletarian mind, the proletarian movement in its different forms, the adventure of capitalism in combining democracy with non-ownership of large social masses, and the personality problem as the basic cause of proletarian unrest." Small amount of chipping to cloth at the crown and near the rear joint; the last 10 leaves with some dampstaining to the corners, not affecting text at all. Very Good. The book is housed in 2 dust jackets. The first appears to be a homemade jacket with the paper label of St. Matthew's Book Stall, Washington, D.C.; over that is the original dust jacket, which has some edgewear, chipping and small chunks missing. Good+. An uncommon title, made more so with the scarce dust jacket and inscribed. Item #03377
