The Confessions of Edward Dahlberg

By Dahlberg, Edward

New York: George Braziller, 1971. 'On days when I saw no students I was hurled about in my sleep by hurricanes, downpours and tornadoes. Zero produces one and one is snow, hail, wormwood, and all are nothing. And all was my fault though nothing was, because nothing is. I was determined to arrange the most congenial meetings with people. Prepared to be meek when I was overbearing. After this humiliation I invented an adage: 'He who says he is your equal is making ready to be your despot,' The next occasion I resolved to be a wag, but I encountered such a dullard that in less than an hour with him I proved to be a greater dunce than he.'. First Edition, First Printing. Cloth. Fine/Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

La Follette's Autobiography: A Personal Narrative of Political Experience

By La Follette, Robert M

Madison, WI: University of Wisconsin Press, 1982. pp. 349. Clean, newish, but for small water stain. 'For an understanding of Bossism, Reform, and Progressivism as they were known in the United States between 1890 and 1912, this book is the most illunimating as well as the most interesting work in existence. . . In the stormy period here covered many men thought with La Follette that greedy business interests were fast gaining control of the land through the servants they placed in state governments and the Senate; and with varying degrees of fervor reformers fought their way to the helm in one state after another--Dolliver and Cummins in Iowa, Bristow in Kansas, George W. Norris in Nebraska, Beveridge in Indiana, U'Renin in Oregon, Hughes in New York--to combat these interests. All of them kept their eyes on La Follette and Wisconsin as models.' . Later Printing. Trade Paperback. Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
