Stapled newsprint with some light edge and corner wear. The covers have some holes along the spine but no real slits. 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 Herbert Aptheker, Ralph Ellison, Joseph Starobin and others.There is an editorial attacking Wall Street. By this time the New Masses sympathies were mainly with the Soviet Union. ; Vol. XXXV No. 13; B&W Illustrations; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 32 pages
