Description:

Pages toned, light soiling, and minor chipping on edges. Edge tear at bottom at fold and small fold in center at intersection of vertical and horizontal folds. Vol. 1, No. 29, November 23, 1898. A group of Anarchists established a utopian "colony" on Puget Sound west of Tacoma in Home, Washington. The weekly paper was started by a group of Home residents to promote their dream of a "more complete civilization without war, starvation and unnecessary suffering of any kind." At the time of publication, the colony had a population of 50 living in 15 houses on 26 acres. The colony grew to be an international refuge for freethinkers and radicals and later attraced noted visitors such as Emma Goldman and Elbert Hubbard. This issue included revised lyrics "America" dedicated to the Chicago Anarchists. By 1900, the colony had grown to nearly 100 residents. The residents of Home used the Lakebay, Washington post office because the Home office was closed after Discontent published an "obscene" article advocating free love. All issues of Discontent are rare. ; Folio 13" - 23" tall; 4 pp. Bookseller Inventory #
