Travels in Two Democracies

New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company, (1936).

Price: $750.00

Hardcover. First edition. Fine in a spine-faded, and thus very good dustwrapper with shallow chipping at the spine ends. Inscribed by the author: "To Ben Stolberg, as ever, From Edmund Wilson. Nov. 15, 1937." According to Columbia University, which holds his papers, Stolberg was an "Author and journalist in the field of American labor. Stolberg was editor of *The Bookman*, a columnist for the *New York Evening Post*, and a contributor to *The New York Times*, the *New York Herald Tribune*, the Scripps-Howard newspapers, and numerous magazines. He was a member of the Commission of Inquiry on Leon Trotsky investigating the Moscow trials." An attractive copy of a scarce book, Wilson's comparison of Depression-era America and Soviet Russia, with an association related to the book's subject.
