Book Condition: Very Good

Edition: 1st

(8), 70pp., First edition, first impression, of six popular wireless talks delivered by the social reformer and economist during May and June 1931, part of a larger radio programme to explain the difficulties of the unemployed. Impeccable provenance: from the personal library of Irene Wagner, senior Labour Party archivist, historian and former Party Chief Librarian. She helped found the International Association of Labour History Institutions. Irene was also a key supporter of the People s History Museum in Manchester. During the 2nd World War Irene worked at Woburn Abbey, in the political intelligence department of the Foreign Office, helping the Special Operations Executive distribute propaganda over Germany. I purchased Irene's Library in 2016 from her Grand-daughter at Irene's Bloomsbury flat where she had lived for 72 years. This still has a printed Fabian Library label on the front paste down endpaper. Beveridge published widely on unemployment and social security, his most notable works being: Unemployment: A Problem of Industry (1909), Planning Under Socialism (1936), Full Employment in a Free Society (1944), Pillars of Security (1943), Power and Influence (1953) and A Defence of Free Learning (1959). He was elected in a 1944 by-election as a Liberal MP (for Berwick-upon-Tweed); following his defeat in the 1945 general election, he was elevated to the House of Lords where he served as the leader of the Liberal peers.
