Vintage Hardcover, First Edition 1934 Dodd, Mead and Company NY 308 pages. Very Good, lacking the DJ. Minor shelf/edge wear to dark green cloth boards with black titles - corners sharp. Minor foxing to photographic endpapers showing a huge artillery piece. No previous owner markings - all pages are clean and unmarked with some scattered minor foxing. Rear inside cover has a gold foil bookstore label from Hyman's Book Store in Des Moines, IA. Foreword by Harry Elmer Barnes. 24 B&W illustrations. Here is the archtype of all post-World War I revisionism of a particular variety: the hunt for the people who made the big bucks off the killing machine. The Merchants of Death was, in many ways, the manifesto of a generation of people who swore there would not be and could not be another. But here is the kicker: it was co-authored by the founder of Human Events, the conservative weekly. So this is no left-wing screed against profiteering. It is a careful and subtle, but still passionate, attack on those who would use government to profit themselves at the expense of other people's lives and property. Recommended. A very respectable First edition. LOC
