24pp., 12mo. Morris's essay paginated [19]-39. Stitched pamphlet. A frail survival, on aged, chipped and creased paper. Priced at one penny on cover, with vignette showing three workers and the banner 'VIVE LA COMMUNE!' The back cover carries advertisements (which date the item), beginning with 'Freedom | A Journal of Anarchist Communism, | Monthly; One Penny. Annual subscription 1/6. Published by John Turner at No. 127 Ossulston Street, London, N.W.', followed by twelve numbered books from 'No. 1. THE WAGE SYSTEM. BY PETER KROPOTKINE. 1d.' to 'No. 12. RESPONSIBILITY and SOLIDARITY IN THE LABOR STRUGGLE. 1d.' These followed by 'Other Pamphlets.', ending with 'GOD AND THE STATE. BY MICHAEL BAKOUNINE. Price fourpence.'
