The little grandmother of the Russian revolution, an interview with Madame Breshkovsky and her special message to the American people [cover story in The Outlook for Wednesday, November 21, 1917]

New York: The Outlook Company, 1917. 3p. (of 441-480p.), entire issue, glazed 12 x 9 inch buff wraps printed in red and green with an inset photo of Breshkovsky (there's another of her inside the magazine, full-page). Tail of spinefold is split 2.5 inches, a narrow line of light dust-soiling along the fore edge, a nice bright copy, vol. 117 no. 12.

A surprisingly sympathetic treatment of the revolution to judge by the text, the captions to photographs, and the political cartoons. Besides the 3p. on Breshkovsky, find texts on "the civil war in Russia," on the world war, on military aviation, and woman sufferage, and ads for Iver Johnson revolvers, Sheaffer pens, and "the Hal twelve" automobile. Amongst the images in a three-page photo section ("Current events illustrated") is a 7.5 x 4 inch panorama of "Negro recruits at a national army cantonment" wearing civilian clothes.
