Descripción

42pp., 12mo. In yellow wraps printed in black and red, with 'Object' and 'Declaration of Principles' of the SPC inside the front cover, and advertisements for SPC publications on both sides of the back cover. Stapled. In fair condition, aged and worn, with pencil ownership inscriptions of 'Jean Thurlow'. The Preface begins: 'This pamphlet was first published in 1910 as the Manifesto of the Socialist Party of Canada. During the ten-year period ending in 1920, five editions, totalling more than 25,000 copies, were issued. The growing insistence of members and sympathisers impels us to place the Manifesto once again in the hands of the working class. The present edition consists of 5,000 copies. | Some changes have been made. [.] This is the second time that the Manifesto has been issued in the midst of war. The fourth edition made its appearance during the first world war. Then, as now, the banner of international socialism was held high'. It concludes: 'What will be the outcome of the present war? Our statesmen promise a finer world than any we have known - after the guns are silenced. The statesmen of the first world war made the same promise. On the other hand the Party Manifesto, more brutally perhaps, but more honestly, promised "an outbreak of peace as cataclysmic as was the outbreak of war." The statesmen were wrong; the Manifesto was right. | The statesmen will be wrong again, if the future world is to remain in their keeping. The war has accelerated the development of the means of production to a degree hardly conceivable a few years ago. [.] There can be no finer world for workers - until they pay heed to the message of socialism.' No copy in the British Library or on COPAC. OCLC WorldCat lists three copies in the United States, two in Canada and one in Holland. N° de ref. de la librería 13424
