WORK -ACCIDENTS AND THE LAW (1910)
The striking dust jacket cover from one of the books which came out of the famous Pittsburgh Survey of the pre-World War I period. The yellow numbers linked to the various body parts give the range of remuneration allowed for actual losses sustained by workers in Allegheny County in 1907. In the small white print (visible in the full-sized poster) the case-by-case figures are listed for each body part. A powerful image taken from an extremely rare dust jacket. Crystal Eastman was a leading feminist and social critic of the early 20th century. Her brother, Max Eastman, was the Editor of "The Masses," a legendary radical magazine of the arts and politics. And Crystal Eastman herself was the Managing Editor of "Liberator," the 1918-1924 successor to "The Masses."
