Description
 
The Liberator ran from 1918 til 1924 when it merged with two other magazines to become "The Workers Monthly". The magazine was known for its tendencies to publish articles regarding the socialist movement, from gradualist to revolutionary. Editor Max Eastman along with the help of his sister, feminist Crystal Eastman and Managing Editor, launched this magazine after there previous venture, "The Masses", and magazine with similar political leanings but as shut down by the government after World War I. This particular issue features a cover drawn by Maurice Sterne, and two feature stories were "Conversations with Lenin," by Arthur Ransome, and "In Communist Hungary" by Crystal Eastman. The covers are nearly fully detached. The binding is loose and the paper itself is brittle resulting in several interior detached pages. Furthermore, the act of turning the other interior pages results in the pages detaching. The pages are toned and soiled due to age, and there is a stain on the upper right corner of the magazine the runs all the way through. 11" x 8 1/2".
