A Nearly Complete Collection of One of the Greatest Radical Magazines in America
[Max Eastman, Floyd Dell and Robert Minor, editors].
The Liberator. New York: Liberator Publishing, Co.,
Workers Party of America, 1918-1924. First editions of this
beautifully produced magazine. This collection begins with the
first issue (March, 1918) and runs until August, 1924 (although it
is unclear when The Liberator ceased publication and began
publishing as The Worker's Monthly, it did so at around this
time, so the August, 1924 issue is quite possibly the last issue).
Seventy issues, nearly complete (this collection lacks issues for
May, 1918; November, 1919, 1922, 1923; March, April, and October,
1923, and July, 1924). Each issue in original pictorial wrappers.
Toned, the usual wear, some issues creased. Still, a fine
collection of this beautifully-produced magazine. From the
collection of Zita Books.
This monthly Socialist magazine was established by Max Eastman and his sister Crystal in 1918, to continue the work of the defunct magazine, The Masses, shut down by the government due to war regulations. It had first rate international news, as reported by John Reed (founder of the Communist Labor Party), Robert Minor, Hiram K. Moderwell, and others. It had literary contributions by E. E. Cummings, John Dos Passos, Ernest Hemingway, and others. But it was known for its beautiful artwork (including fine full-color cover art) by Art Young, Boardman Robinson, William Gropper, Fred Ellis, and others.

As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
