DescriptionUpton Sinclair. Singing Jailbirds, A Drama in Four Acts. Pasadena: published by the author, 1924.
First edition. Twelvemo. 95 pages plus a one-page ad for a previous Sinclair book.
Original stapled wraps. Faint half-inch stain to front cover. A shallow crease to the first few pages. As expected, pages yellowing a bit. Overall, a very good copy.
A play written in response to a strike of transport workers in San Pedro, California in 1923, during which Sinclair was arrested and jailed. Laid in is a small flier advertising a roster of lectures and publications of the Industrial Workers of the World; flier is undated, but, presumably, it is from 1924.

We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.View More Testimonials
