“YOURS FOR PEACE”: FIRST EDITION OF LEAGUE OR WAR?, INSCRIBED BY IRVING FISHER

FISHER, Irving. League or War? New York and London: Harper & Brothers, 1923. Octavo, original blue cloth, uncut. $950.

First edition of this work arguing in favor of America’s responsibility to promote world peace, inscribed: “Yours for Peace, Irving Fisher.”

In this book, Irving Fisher urges America to join the League of Nations in order to prevent the outbreak of another world war. He advances the idea that America is responsible for promoting world peace and that America must be at the table to prevent punitive actions against losing nations and the build-up of war machinery in anticipation of future wars. Ultimately, it was precisely those actions that set the stage for World War II.

Interior fine; light rubbing to extremities of original cloth. An about-fine copy, scarce inscribed.
