Stapled newsprint with some light edge and corner wear. The covers are still attached, but barely; the spine is slit to within a couple of inches from the bottom. Paper is toned especially along edges but no more than would be expected from newsprint. New Masses (19261948) 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 Ilya Ehrenbourg, Herbert Aptheker, The Archbishop of Canterbury and others.There is an editorial on USA-USSR Cooperation. By 1940 the New Masses sympathies were mainly with the Soviet Union. ; Vol. XXXVII No. 8; B&W Illustrations; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 32 pages
