Chicago: Collectivist League, Publisher. Pamphlet. Fair. Item #015512
no date, perhaps circa 1888. Single sheet, folded into four pages, with only two pages bearing printing. A short outline of philosophy and ideas surrounding the concept of collectivism, in which this group is advocating for a People's State to administer all capital and labor, as opposed to capitalists. The group draws on socialist and anarchist philosophies to envision its goals. The Collectivist League of Chicago was a short-lived (under this name) group that identified with ideas associated with socialism and the work of philosopher Pierre-Joseph Proudhon. Formed in 1888, the group changed its name to the Nationalist Club of Illinois in 1889, aligning itself with other Nationalist clubs, groups of socialist organizations inspired by the utopian work of Edward Bellamy. FAIR/GOOD condition. Piece almost completely separated into two pieces along the fold. Moderate toning. Minor soiling and some wrinkling.
