New Masses, May 14, 1940


Stapled newsprint with some slits along spine. Covers are attached but with some weakness. Light edge wear with one small tear on right edge. Paper is toned especially along edges but no more than would be expected from newsprint. New Masses (1926–1948) was one of the succesors to the original Masses (1912-1917). New Masses was associated with the Communist Party in the US, but at its inception was more a magazine of liberal and left wing ideology with writers as diverse as Hemingway, William Carlos Williams, John Dos Passos, Langston Hughes amd many more. It later became a more rigid, Marxist-oriented publication. This issue features articles by Ralph Ellison, Harold Ward, Bert Gold, Bruce Minton and a number of others. ; Vol. XXXV No. 8; B&W Illustrations; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 32 pages
