Strike of Vermont Marble Company Workers:. Verbatim Report of Public Hearing, Town Hall, West Rutland, Vt., Feb 29, 1936.

W. Rutland, VT: United Comm. to Aid Vermont Marble Workers, 1936. First Edition. Original Wraps. A very handsome copy of one of the scarcest of Kent items. Front and rear wraps show the delegates on the stage and the audience. The cover, famously, was done by Kent and carrys the quotation, "In the name of the great Jehovah and the Continental Congress". Kent is quoted at the start, "In striking, the marble workers are enduring in Vermont, hardships approaching those of Washington's soldiers at Valley Forge. Their cause is just as good." Scarce in any condition, this is a remarkably handsome copy, inscribed by Kent. A gem for the sophisticated Kent collection. Near Fine in Wraps. Minimal shelf/edge wear, minor soiling at rear, signed by Kent at the front, else tight, bright and unmarred. Beige pictorial wraps. 8vo. 36pp. Illus. (b/w plates). Item #5503

Price: $2,500.00
