What I believe. Reprinted from the New York world of July 19, 1908

Goldman, Emma

New York

Mother Earth Publishing Association



15. [1] pp. 18.3x12.3 cm (7¼x4¾"), original printed wrappers. 

Written in response to "widespread public misconceptions about anarchism," the article systematically combated slanders against Goldman and outlined her anarchist approach to issues of property, government, militarism, free speech, the church, marriage and love, and violence. This second edition seems to be much scarcer than the first edition published the same years, with only seven copies located in institutional libraries by OCLC/WorldCat

Lot Amendments

Light stains to lower corners of wrappers and a few of the pages within; very good.
