This 12 part poem spans 4 pages, is translated by Robert Brittain, with illustrations by Jose Venturelli. This poem was written by Neruda to commemorate the 1946 Chile incident where police attacked Chilean workers who were gathered and meeting as the General Confederation of Workers of Chile. 5 were killed, and many more injured. Not due to the poem, but rather his political standing as Senator, Pablo Neruda went into hiding in 1948 when Communism was outlawed in Chile. Condition : This issue is near 75 years old.
I grade this in solid GOOD+ condition. There is minor toning around the edges, and little to no creasing. Some minor edge wear, in the form of SHORT edge-tears, TINY chips, or a folded corner.NO large tears, chips or loss of anything. Paper, although aged, is still flippable and in hand reading is comfortable, just don't be overly aggressive with it. YES, I spend time on the flaws, but that's so you know what you get.
This is a rather appealing, still attractive, and well preserved issue. Book is preserved in an acid-free archival bag. Read further for packing and how it will arrive to you. Poem by Pablo Neruda titled The Dead In the Square (illustrated). Article: King (Henry) Ford is Dead - And So is Uncle Tom.

It will be sandwiched in between 2 cardboard sideboards (with border around issue) for stabilizing, put into ANOTHER archival bag for further protection. Then put into a #5 padded/bubble jiffy mailer and taped up tight. I do not recycle packing materials and reuse as my primary protection.I protect against bending as well as inclement weather and rain drop damage during travel. About : New Masses was an American Marxist publication with ties to the Communist Party USA. Photographs, articles, book reviews, poetry, illustrations & cartoons, these issues are a bold snapshot of history. This iteration ran roughly from 1926 with the final issues appearing in 1948. It began in New York, as part of the CPUSA output of publications. Many of the contributors were or went on to be important figures in writing, music, thought, politics and beyond. William Carlos Williams, Theodore Dreiser, John Dos Passos, Upton Sinclair, Richard Wright, Ralph Ellison, Dorothy Parker, John Breecher, Langston Hughes, Eugene O'Neill, Rex Stout and Ernest Hemingway. It also circulated works by avowedly leftist artists: Kenneth Fearing, H. Lewis, Jack Conroy, Grace Lumpkin, Jan Matulka, Ruth McKenney, Maxwell Bodenheim, Meridel LeSueur, Josephine Herbst, Jacob Burck, Tillie Olsen, Stanley Burnshaw, Louis Zukofsky, George Oppen, Crockett Johnson, Wanda Gág, and Albert Halper, and Aaron Copland. S it took on a much more Leftwing/Marxist focus, and the arts, poetry and such were much more selective. In 1948, New Masses published its final issue, and was rolled into Masses & Mainstream which continued on until 1963. I will happily answer any further questions.
