About this Item

(Volume XCIX, No. 7). Small 4to. Wrappers. Pp. 147-199. Very good. Mild age toning, with bit of mild foxing to outer wrappers (only). 50th anniversary issue of this "Weekly Review of Public Affairs, Literature and the Arts," reprinting memorable contributions from Dorothy Day, Wilfrid Sheed, Thomas Merton, Hans Kung, G.K. Chesterton, Daniel Berrigan and others. A nice association copy, for this copy came from the library of JOHN BEECHER (1904-80), noted social protest poet and fine press publisher -- and a friend of Thomas Merton. Beecher underlines Merton's name on the front wrapper and inks in "Pg. 177" alongside it, and he also places a tick next to Merton's article ("Is the World a Problem?") on the table of contents and next to the beginning of the actual article. (In 1963 Beecher published "On Acquiring a Cistercian Breviary," a poem honoring his Trappist friend.) In addition, publisher EDWARD S. SKILLIN (1904-2000) of "Commonweal" boldly inscribes the front wrapper: "With best wishes / to John Beecher / Edward S. Skillin." An unusual and choice copy. Bookseller Inventory # 16664
