Clean text and pictures throughout. A very good copy of this biography, with an interesting provenance. ** Harry Pollitt (22 November 1890 27 June 1960) was a British politician who served as the head of the trade union department of the Communist Party of Great Britain and the General Secretary of the party. In 1919 Pollitt was involved in the "Hands off Russia" campaign to protest against Allied intervention in the Russian Civil War. At the end of the war he joined Sylvia Pankhurst's Workers' Socialist Federation, which became the Communist Party (British Section of the Third International). As a member of this group he joined the Communist Party of Great Britain when it was formed in mid-1920. Pankhurst soon left the party, but Pollitt remained. He was heavily influenced by the Communist intellectual Rajani Palme Dutt and the two remained close allies for many years. From 1924 to 1929 Pollitt was General Secretary of the National Minority Movement, a Communist-led united front within the trade unions.In 1925, he married Marjory Edna Brewer (b. 1902), a communist schoolteacher, and they had a son and a daughter. That year Pollitt was one of 12 members of the Communist Party convicted at the Old Bailey under the Incitement to Mutiny Act 1797 and one of the five defendants sentenced to 12 months imprisonment. Harry Pollitt died, aged 69, of a cerebral haemorrhage, after years of worsening health, while returning on the SS Orion from a speaking tour of Australia on 27 June 1960. He was cremated at Golders Green on 9 July, and was survived by his wife and two children, Brian and Jean." - See Wikipedia . *** Identified signatures include (believed to be all members of the Communist Party) : Marjorie Pollitt (1902-1991 - Wife of Harry Pollitt ); Thomas Floran; Gerry Hobin; Maurice Levine; Marjorie Slater; Max Fraser; Alice Clarke; Douglas Clowes; Sam Wild; Les Whitney; Kay Whitney; Bessie Wild; Ruth Ford; J.
